Hi everyone,
I have a question about breastfeeding and bowel movements. My 3.5 month old daughter is strictly breastfed and recently she has started going one or two days without a bowel movement. Is this normal? She is otherwise the same...she pees the same as before and she's healthy and energetic and just an all around happy baby. Is it normal for breastfed babies to go a few days without pooping or am I dealing with constipation?

Its normal EBF babies can go up to 10 days with no concerns They just have far less waste.

Thanks Lala! I was starting to get a little concerned that she hasn't pooped in two days, even though she seems completely unphased by not pooping

I know it's normal but after 3 days, my daughter gets miserable and seems to have stomach pains. Is this normal too?

My baby goes 5-7 days with out a BM. she seems fine.. and when she does go, it is soft and normal. The stomach pains are not normal! They should not be miserable between poops. Call the pedi on that! I hope she feels better!

The stomach pains could be some gas since she hasn't been going. DD was around 3-4 months when she went well over a week without pooping. Boy did that scare me! She had the worst gas too, during that time. She finally got back on a more regular pooping schedule after that, but some days she would go 3 times a day and other times she would poop every other day.
