My little guy pooped (ALOT!) on the first day, twice on the second day. Now he is 5 days old and hasn't pooped since day 2. He is breastfeeding great and peeing a lot, but no poop. We have a drs appointment Wednesday. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks!
My LO pooped a lot the first few days and then ever since he has been going once every 3 days. My doctor says that is completely normal. She told me young babies can go anywhere between a few times a day and once every 5 days.
when after my lo cleared the meconium she didn't go for three in and a half day's. i took her to the newborn clinic at the hospital i delivered at and they informed me that if it hasn't been four day's to not worry. . and to feel her little tummy, if she cries when you touch or press it or if her tummy is hard and shiny call the doctor or take her in sooner than wednesday. on the third day when she finally went. . . she went
He definitely cleaned out all of the meconium. My goodness, there was so much the first two days I didn't think it was humanly possible for all of that to come out of a baby so small. He is not uncomfortable, and his belly feels normal. He is passing a lot of gas, still eating very well, and peeing a lot. Am curious to see what the doc says. Thanks everyone for your posts. This board is so helpful and reassuring to know so many others are going through the same thing.
