Moms pretty much worry constantly about what goes in and what comes out of our children. Trying to discern what “normal” poop looks like is nearly impossible. This gallery of poop and pee diapers aims to provide a variety of diaper experiences and age ranges. Special thanks to all the babies who so generously made this gallery possible.
This gallery is not intended to provide medical advice or diagnose any GI or feeding condition. Please contact your doctor, lactation consultant, and other health care team members if you are concerned about your baby’s diapering patterns.
