My buckling was born yesterday afternoon. I just went out to check on him this morning and there is this bright orange goo/poop coming from his butt. I didnt want to pull on it or mess with it because I didn't know if it was his insides:(

Ya weird stuff huh? Who knew it would look so different from Mom's?;) it will stay like that for a while and gradually change. Mom usually cleans baby up while he is nursing, but if she doesn't you can.

Make sure it doesn't block his anus. The poop is like glue- it can adhere and prevent him from pooping!
One of the lesser known joys of new baby kids! After a few days, it will become yellowy little curds.
If it ever gets real runny, that is not good! Then he needs treated for scours.

Got him all cleaned up. Blue dawn dish soap is the trick. It took me over a half hour his poor little tail was hard as a rock:(
