The meconium is more abundant, and lower down in the intestines.
meconium: the substance excreted by certain metabolic insects soon after their emergence from the chrysalis or pupa.
In the bowels of children at the time of their birth, there is an accumulation of what is called "the meconium."
The meconium is black, and when the infant is effectually eased of it, the subsequent stools are of a whitish cast.
It is found in the esophagus and stomach, and forms the meconium.
The bones are tolerably firm, and the meconium collects in the large intestines.
"fecal discharge from a newborn infant," 1706, from Latin meconium "excrement of a newborn child," literally "poppy juice," from Greek mekonion "poppy-juice, opium," diminutive of mekon "poppy" (perhaps cognate with Old Church Slavonic maku, German Mohn "poppy"). So called by classical physicians for its resemblance. Related: Meconial.
