So my little man has some jaundice and the doc and all the nurses said to BF as much as I can,so I have been. They said the more he pees and poops the faster it will pass through his liver and be gone. The also said babies should have 1 pee for each day of their age,so day 1 will be 1 pee,day 2 will be 2 pees etc... They didn't say how many poops though. Today he's had 4 so far. One was a tarry poop and the rest have been nice breast milk poops. I'm a little afraid that maybe I fed him to much and now he has poops that are bugging his little tummy. I hear his tummy gurgle when he does his poop.

Wooo! Ok that's good then! I won't worry then. It's just that when I have a gurgle in my tummy and I have to poop it doesn't feel good at all.

Also may be a silly question,but with each poop diaper does it mean there is also pee in there? Again when I poop I also have to pee so I assume he does too.

Gavin poops SO much!! i would say normally 8 a day!!! and his tummy makes the same noise and often i can hear the poop shooting out his bum and hitting the diaper!!!

the thing about pee matching their days is new to me... i thought they had to pee more than that i can't remember off the top of my head but i have a chart and it wants more pee than that
if you want i can go looking for that chart

sorry i was typing during your last message... the feel of the diaper will change if there is pee in it too.... for us the pee is normally more in the front of the diaper and the poo at the back

try feeling a diaper before you use it and then compare to the on you took off... the front part will probably feel different
hope that sorta makes sense

Yeah with a pee diaper I can often hear it happen and it also feel a bit jelly like n the diaper.

At the hospital I told the nurse I worried b/c he only made one pee that day and she told me not to worry then told me about the pee matching their age. It can go up to 6 pees a day. In another place I read they need to have about 10 -12 diapers a day.

I think most BF babies poop multiple times per day. He will "regulate" in a few weeks hun, you're doing GREAT!

I think Roan does 12-15 poops a day -- because I usually have to change him before and after feeding

Hi Michelle! How ya doing?

Wren poops ALL THE TIME! I swear we change 6-8 poopy diapers a day, so not to worry. In fact, it is great that your little man is pooping so much right now because he'll get rid of the jaundice in no time.

I'm doing great! I really am! We had our first outing yesterday! A nice long,but slow 2 hour walk around the waterfront where I live,I can't believe I've never walked there before. They have a nice park and water feature for the warmer weather when he's older and also a little ice cream place! We went to Tim Hortons and everyone was admiring him and they loved his name! I was so proud and happy! He's such a happy baby too.

I was told about the pee thing too (matching their days in age)..Elaina also poops A LOT, always a little with almost every single diaper change and many times she'll shoot poop out while in the middle of changing her LMAO! Sounds like you're doing everything just perfectly

Thank you so much Alethia for my GORGEOUS siggy!!
