Yes!! Lincoln goes on average, about every 4-5 days. Sometimes it's an entire week of no pooping. It started when he hit a growth spurt a few weeks ago and I needed to supplement with a little formula, but just TINY bit, like 2oz each day for a few days. So I stopped the formula and went back to 100% breastmilk, but he is still only going every 4-5 days.

I know it can be normal for bf babies, because they use the bm so efficiently. Part of me sure doesn't mind not having to change a dirty diaper every day, but I worry that he's uncomfortable too. He seems ok though.

Oh, and I started giving him some apple juice, hoping it would help him poop, but it hasn't changed how often he goes. I might try prune juice if he seems uncomfortable.
