Post subject: Baby girl question
I've noticed my daughter has a bit of sticky mucous discharge coming from her foof...is this normal? She's only 2 days old and still passing miconium poo and doing the odd wee.

She's been mucousy anyway which I'd expect at this stage as she's been living in amniotic fluid for months..but is this discharge normal?
Mws coming in the morning so I'll ask her but just want a bit of reassurance really
TIA X

Hi zee - yes totally normal. It won;t last too long. Girls also so sometimes have a small 'bleed' from there too, but it is just hormones from you and also perfectly normal so don't panic!

Knew that was going to be the question I had to ask my friend when I noticed that! It's so stringy and strange but yes completely normal! x

Thankfully my friend gave me the heads up on this, and also they can leak 'milk' (boys aswell) from their nipples. Although the mw at the day after discharge mentioned it aswell.

Yes, completely normal, Naia keeps getting it. It's basically a mini period but without the blood - its because she's still got mummy's hormones within her.

Funny enough she did have spotting in her nappy the next day after I did this thread. I was just taking the nappy off as the mw was weighing her and noticed it, she too said it's like a mini period.
It's cleared now as has the discharge. Smile
