    For the past three days, my lo who is 2 andahalf weeks has only poo'd once a day and its seedy but more green than yellow with mucus. She has been screaming, like gas pains, and I'm not sure what to do I know she's not "backed up" but 1. How can I help her and 2. What could be going on?

    My baby screamed and cried and fussed when he pooped at that age too. I read somewhere it's perfectly normal.

    Here is a good link:

    They grow out of it. My LO just pauses what he is doing and grunts a little...then you hear a big squirt....

    I do think its an imbalance as I had an oversupply and she stops eating after five or ten minutes. How long should I feed for or pump to make sure she's getting hind milk?
