Re: My baby has gone 6 days without pooping?

giggle giggle ... to the PP who said mudslide!!

That's exactly how we referred to my first daughter's once a week poops. Her ped said that she was efficient and used everything that came in. Well, yes and no. She definitely used MOST of it, but MAN OH MAN were there some HUGE poops!!

ever had this experience....
I didn't read any of the posts but my DD is the same way. Well she was until I recently started letting her taste some baby food. She mostly goes like once a week if that. Her pedi said that BF babies absorb almost all of the nutrients and have very little waste to poo. I gag every time I change her poopy dipes now b/c I am so used to her BFing dipes and the solid food dipes are the worst!!! :babypoop: Does he/she seem truly constipated? Like straining or crying with a tummy ache? If not I wouldn't worry a/b it. I read on http://www.kellymom.com that a baby can goes for more than 14 days w/o having a poo....you might search on there to get a little more info. GL!!!!

Re: My baby has gone 6 days without pooping?

Both of my DD's like to hold their poop for 1- ??? days. DD1 would go for 8 or so. I have heard with breast-fed it is more common. I wouldn't be too alarmed! Keep watching for wet dipes to be sure that your DC is hydrated and be ready for an explosion to come but everything should be

My boys are big poopers, so I can't say that I have that problem- or blessing whichever way you look at it but two of my friends kids would go almost two weeks... and no real problems.
