    Ru breast feeding or bottle feeding hun? I was BF and my LO used to do a poo at least 3-4 times a day. I know they say bottle fed babys dont boo as much though...xx

    If ur breastfeeding, it's very variable to how often they go. Some can go a couple of days whereas others will have something there at every nappy change. Not sure about bottle fed though at that age. x

    Some days my LO does about 6 or 7 poos and others she does none at all!! I wouldn't worry at the mo, I know this maybe tmi but if she is passing wind (from the bottom) then I would just leave things to happen naturally!!! x

    I wouldnt worry yet, leave it another day and then assess it again, are you feeding any plain boiled water aswell as milk, this always seemed to help my little ones keep regular

    I'm bottlefeeding and Lola-Rose pooped around twice a day approximatly.

    Although she did have a very upset tummy at around 2 weeks and she was constipated,also hadn't done it for about 24 hours.As long as it's not longer than 40 hours it's fine :)
