    lol sorry for the vulgar title!

    Roo is primarily BF but for the last few weeks she has been getting some formula occasionally. (aptamil cartons) She used to do a number 2 several times a day, now its only once and although it seems a big struggle to get it out, its VERY runny and stinks to high heaven! Her farts are also REALLy bad... like bad enough to warrant a nappy change as they smell so bad its hard to believe its only gas! is this normal or a sign that somethings not quite right? she is 7 weeks today

    runny is normal for bfing and smelly is normal for ff. When I was doing the combination feeding I got the same thing and my Ped told me that's normal for combination.

    The big farts?... that's just normal for babies. They can fart better than any guy :rofl:

    Going by what the nurses at the neonatal says about Pre-aptilmil vs breast milk - the aptimil does give the nappies a rotten smell and colour :rofl:

    Yeah our babies can really let them rip! My hubby has accused me of eating rotten eggs to make my breastmilk give Gabriel such stinkiness

    Elyse had very bad, loud gas for the first few weeks but it has gotten better as time has gone by, since around 3 months it's been down to only a couple loud ripper farts a day.. I think the smelly gas/less poos per day is a formula thing :) Elyse poos 1-2 times per day, but when she was younger sometimes only one every 2 days. She still tricks me though, I think she's pooped and it's just gas. And we definitely have the problem where I'm not sure if it's OH or Elyse that's farted, I have to ask, then I'm not sure if I believe OH when he says no all the time. I sure hope he doesn't blame his toots on Elyse!!

    Aisling is exclusively bf and dear god, her farts are unbelievable! I too have gone to change her nappy only to realise it was just a fart! As for the poos, she goes much less now than during the first few weeks and the smell is more intense - it all sounds normal for bfing and ffing hon :hugs:

    I'm so pleased I found this post, I was beginning to worry about Grace's bowels, she's gone from 6 poos a day to just 1 and farts like a brickie! It's quite funny to see her stretch and let rip at the same time! She EBF but they still stink! I've been reassured by this thread, thanks!
