    I did check the poop web site and didn't see any that were like this poop. I don't know which one it is coming from but it doesn't look right to me. What do you think?

    I would not worry yet.
    Does it happen more?
    Did she eat something?
    Did she get any iron?

    It looks like cecal poop to me.

    Edited to ask: Is it kind of "gluey" in texture and stinky?

    Are you asking if she could possibly have an iron deficiency?
