Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

default baby not pooing much

Post by claireea on Sat Aug 09, 2008 10:28 am

Hi just wondering if anyone has had same experience as me. My baby girl is 8 weeks and bf but can go for about 5 days between poos, when she goes it is soft but she seems to do a lot of straining to get it out. She also farts a lot and they stink! lol does all this sound normal to you guys?

Bf baaby can go for ages between poops, its perfeclty normal- this is how breastmilk is made: mamy uses everything needs from it and only waste left is pee.

At my anenatal class, one of the midwives talked about her bf baby only pooing once a week. Always at the baby clinic when she was getting weighed.

All normal and like Kasia said - the breastmilk has everything a baby needs so there is very little waste.

Yeah hun bethany often went days without pooing. She only started pooing most days when i introduced solids at 6 month hun. Like girls said - all nutrients in breast milk are used straight away and not much waste :aww:
