Re: Breastfeeding and baby poo...

I was about to make a thread like this but thought I'd bump this one instead.

When your babies switched from pooping daily to weekly or whatever, was it a sudden change? My DS has always gone multiple times a day (occasionally once, but usually two or more) then we went on vacation last week. While we were gone he started only going once a day really late in the evening but then he didn't go on our last travel day. He went the next day (Tuesday) but he hasn't gone since then. He seems extra fussy and when I bicycle his legs it calms him down but his stomach isn't hard or distended.

Do I need to talk to a dr before I give him some juice? He's 15 lbs and almost 12 weeks old. Should I wait a few more days before I give it to him?

While we're on the subject of what goes in must come out, it seems like he's been wetting a little less frequently now, too. When counting wet diapers, does it count if they only peed in it once? If they obviously peed many more times does it count as more than one?

Re: Breastfeeding and baby poo...

My baby as a newborn only pooped every 4 days. Then around 2 months it was every 3 days, then around 4 months every other day, and now at 9 months we get 1-2 times a day. They have always been really smelly ( EBF no formula).

I was told this is normal in EBF babies.

Re: Breastfeeding and baby poo...

I guess I was lucky with DD1 & DD2! I just found this on LLLI forum (from http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/enoughmilk-older.html )
DIRTY DIAPERS: Depends on your child.
Number ranges from many per day to one every 7 – 10+ days. After 4 - 6 weeks, some babies switch to an infrequent stooling pattern. This is normal as long as baby is gaining well, and stools are soft and profuse if several days have passed.
and this http://www.mother-2-mother.com/normal.htm#NormalStools
somamama, it says do not give juice. and with the wet diapers, DS wasn't really too wet yesterday but he drenched his diapers in the evening. Isn't it around 3 months they go through a growth spurt? I'm just going to figure that's what's causing all of this mess

Yeah I think there is a growth spurt at 3 months so maybe that's it.

I never drink enough water but I have an oversupply of milk. Is it possible my dehydration is passing through my milk even though he's got enough to eat? Maybe that doesn't make sense.
