    Should I be worried about this? I’m not sure if I’ve seen a solid poop from this little one yet.
    It behaves normally and eats, drinks and is active. It’s 5 days old.
    It has had pasty butt a couple of times.
    I have added a little ACV to their water.

    Looks like cecal poop which occurs about 1 out of every 8-10 normal poops.
    If your little one is acting normal, eating/drinking well and growing, I would not worry about that. I would think s/he is having "normal" poops when you aren't looking:)
