We cut through the crap and ask Baby Love author Robin Barker all about baby poo. What's normal, what's not and the poo stories she's still getting over.

As for her grossest poo war story? "A mother I was seeing was worried because her baby hadn’t pooed for a while but I said not to worry about it, it'll be fine.

Some time later, she was walking around Bondi Junction with her baby, and she looked down the whole top of the jumpsuit was bulging. Then it came curling out the neck of her jumpsuit! That’s the one I always remember."
