What we wish we'd known about baby poo.

You'll never care about (or talk about) poo as much as you will when you're a brand-new mum. From the colour to the texture to - sorry - the odour, you'll wonder, "Is this normal?" almost every time you change your baby's nappy. And that's a good thing! "The extra attention to stool is very well-deserved," says Laura Jana, MD, co-author of Heading Home with Your Newborn: From Birth to Reality. "Your baby's poo tells a whole lot about how he or she is doing with eating."
