I keep eading infants with cf tend to have "greasy" stools. My 8wk old has had very odd sools consistently since 2wks old. Now his growth as all but stopped and we're being talked to about testing for cf. This is my 4th son and the first babe with this type of poo. i'v described it as quite mucousy- slimey almsot stringy instead of the seedy yellow that hsi brothers had. (exclusivly breastfed) It has often been green- more green than yellow, althogh yellow now. I've had oversupply issues (we think) which can cause the green poo- but even though the yellow has eturned the consistency is the same. Please help by describing what "greasy" "frothy" infant poo is typically like in babes with cf. (does it still smell foul if breastfed?)

thanks sooooo much for any information. i have no idea here.

Everyone with Cf is so different but my daughter's stools were as you descibed mucousy and slimey looking.They were also very fatty looking on the diaper. Usually a strange greeny colour with a very offensive smell. (We used to call it toxic waste LOL) My daughter started out breastfeeding but it was too much effort for her (She used to fall asleep with the effort) so she was feed formula from a fairly early age. From other CF babies that I have been around they still do tend to be smelly

Good luck
