DAD's Guide to Nappy Changing (1:54)
If your baby has been circumcised, follow your doctor’s instructions about when to begin bathing him. Pre-crawlers only need a bath 2-3 times a week, as long as they're cleaned well during diapering, but many moms believe otherwise.
Your baby's poop for the first couple of days may look like horrifying black tar. Don't worry, it's just meconium. Meconium is hard to get off of your baby's skin (liberally use a diaper cream so it doesn't stick as much the next time) and will last a couple of days. The good news is that it's basically odorless.
The first few stools will be meconium from materials ingested when the infant was in the uterus. It's thick, sticky like tar, dark olive green and there's a lot of it.
If your baby poops into the amniotic fluid before being born, it can get into their mouth and nose and interfere with their breathing, so the medical staff may aspirate it his from the nose and mouth to prevent this.
