Re: BFing and baby bowel movements?

The baby may still be passing her meconium poop. It's not the same as EBF poop. And it isn't as often. I wouldn't worry about her not getting enough. Just BF regularly and often. Even if she doesn't seem hungry I would try to feed her every 2 hours. That should help a little with the engorgement too. It will be rough the first couple days when the milk comes in but it will taper off and not be so bad. And good luck at breast feeding! Don't give up, it WILL get better!!! PM if you have any questions!
