GREEN-BLACK AND STICKY

Your Baby & Toddler - - Newborn -

For the first few days af­ter birth your baby will pass meco­nium stools. Meco­nium is the sub­stance that lined your baby’s bow­els while he was in the womb, giv­ing it the dark colour and sticky con­sis­tency. Use cot­ton wool dipped in baby oil to wipe this off and ap­ply a layer of jelly to your baby’s bot­tom so that the next sticky stool is eas­ier to clean off.
