News for Newborns & For You {Giveaway}

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers.
I was provided product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Bringing home a new baby is such a joyous occasion, but it can be scary and overwhelming at times. Preparing yourself for what you might expect is the first step in helping you feel confident.



Be aware this post is a little TMI as it is about baby poop. But as a new mother (or expecting) this is something you will be thinking about more than you ever thought you would. You will need to keep an eye on your baby's poop color for the first two months of their life because if something is off then something could be terribly wrong. So it is important to know what is "normal".

When SweetPea was a newborn, she was exclusively breastfed and although she had plenty of wet diapers, she hardly ever pooped! This was new to me. Every baby I had been around would poop daily, if not more frequently. I worked at a day care and was a nanny, but hadn't been around many exclusively breastmilk fed babies. Peanut on the other hand was the complete opposite! And then his poops turned green. Turns out his lip tie was making him only get the foremilk or I could have had an oversupply, either way he was only getting "sweet milk" and not the fatty hind milk which can make their poop green. But green is still a normal color of baby poop!

But not only was his poop green he was also going more often, so much that he ended up with diaper rash. Do you know what causes diaper rash? Do you know how to get rid of it? Diaper rash is awful and can be caused by so many different things. I suggest getting some good diaper cream and letting your baby roll around on a blanket without a diaper for a few hours.


 
Pampers created the Stool Color Cards (pictured above) and a Diaper Rash Infographic to help new moms ease into the transition of Motherhood. These helpful assets will be distributed to hospitals Nationwide so new Moms are armed with the information to march confidently through those first few months.

  1. My baby is three months old now, and I pretty much worry about EVERYTHING... it's ridiculous haha! Especially concerning her poop... is she pooping too much, not enough, why is her poop different colored sometimes... It's getting better though as I realize that some change here and there is normal :)

  23. her diaper rash and bowel movements. She has to drink similac allimentum after trying 5 other formulas that still gave her diarhea. she is 6 months now and the allimentum her pooping is normal and she only goes twice a day now. the only problem is when she goes she automatically gets a rash no matter what kind of cream powder, pamper, wipe, or soap i used. I am just so fed up with formulas period. i think i may buy vitamins and make my own formula with evaporated milk water and sugar.

  69. For my son, I was a new mom and I worried about how people would judge me for winding up bottle feeding when breastfeeding was not working for us. When I had my daughter, I had decided not to let anyone judge me for deciding to solely nurse her. But I did worry however about her umbilical cord stump healing properly. I am pregnant with #3 and I am worried about his umbilical cord. He has a 2 vessel cord rather than a 3 vessel cord that most babies have. It can cause defects and other issues such as small birth weight. I still have 6 weeks to go and he is already weighing in at around 7 lbs and measuring 38 weeks, so I doubt low birthweight will be an issue!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I always worry about whether I'm keeping them too warm/too cold.

    ReplyDelete
