Re: Constipated Breastfed Twins

It's common for breastfed babies to have lengths of several days between bowel movements. My daughter once went like 8 days (when she was EBFing) without a bowel movement. I had someone once explain it that breastmilk is more easily digestible by infants, so there is less "waste" material to be put into the digestive tract. Hope that helps!
