Warning Wash your hands after changing a diaper to avoid spreading germs. Step 1: Pooping frequency Keep an eye on how frequently your baby poops. If that pattern changes for more than a couple of days, call your doctor. Tip Most babies' bowel movements regulate in the first month or two. Step 2: Check poop consistency Check the consistency. Runny diapers that continue for 2 or 3 days could mean an infection or allergy and a hard stool could indicate constipation. Step 3: Check poop color Take note of the color of your baby's poop, which may be affected by what your baby is eating and how well they are digesting. Step 4: Contact doctor Call your doctor if your baby's stool is black and tar-like, is bloody, or is white and chalky. Did You Know? At first, breast-fed babies may poop up to10 times a day.
