Let’s talk about baby poo

Season 1,   Sep 02, 2020, 09:31 AM

The Beat podcast is designed for healthcare professionals and is brought to you by Nutricia. As a baby develops, their digestive system will produce a variety of different poos, which can generate concern from parents about what is healthy and what may warrant further investigation. Assisting parents in understanding their baby's gut development may help to put their mind at ease if they have any concerns in this area. On this episode of The Beat podcast, we are joined by a parent of a seven month old baby, and an NHS paediatric dietitian to talk about the important role of the gut microbiome, red flag symptoms of infant digestion problems, and what healthcare professionals should expect when it comes to questions about a baby’s bowel movements.
