So sense baby has come home from the hospital she has had several dirty diapers a day. A lot of the time they are wet but every single time they have been poopy. She just does that a lot. Well today she has still had several wet diapers but not a single one of them has been poopy. I wanna say that her last poop diaper was last night before she went to bed. I'm not too concerned because she's not being any extra fussy, I don't think she's constipated... And she is still wetting plenty of diapers and eating normal. But i wonder why all the sudden the change.

Do your babies poop several times a day still, or is it slowing down already? I thought they did that for several months till we start introducing other foods.

aralyn pooped a lot the first 3-4 weeks and it had slowed down since. I'm sure she'll go when she's ready. I would call though if it gets past 48 hrs. At least that's what my dr says.

Rose will sometimes go a day or two without a dirty diaper and she's not constipated. It's totally normal. Of course, I'm formula feeding so if you're breastfeeding the rules are a little different but I still wouldn't worry yet. I seem to remember hearing that FF or BF, you don't get concerned until like a week has passed without a dirty diaper.

A week? That's a long time lol. I mostly breastfeed but I supplement with formula no more than twice a day. She doesn't act constipated but if she doesn't go after tomorrow ill give her doctor a call.

Like Nyzira said, it's normal to go a day or a few without a bowel movement, and even having just one poopy diaper per week can be normal for some EBF babies. So your LO is likely just fine!

I am envious though; my son has had persistent diarrhea for about seven weeks. . When he has a non-poopy diaper I cheer, lol.

I wouldn't call til after a week for a EBF baby. That's how my daughter was. No poops for days, and then she would just poop all day long! Have you tried bicycling her legs or gas drops? How I get Caleb to poop is I lean back on a pillow or on the couch and put my knees up and set him in the V shape of my belly and thighs. His thighs gently push on his belly and he just lets loose!

I'd give it atleast 5 days if baby isn't acting fussy and uncomfortable. My DS1 went 2 weeks without pooping and I was concerned but later found out that it was perfectly normal for a baby that is EBF.
