My breastfed infant is a month old and for the last few days she has been having 1-2 bowel movements a day. Is she constipated if so what to give her?

Probably OK: It is not unusual for babies to have change in stool pattern as they grow. . Also, it is normal for breastfed babies to have longer periods of time with no stools. Breast milk is the perfect baby food, thus there is less "waste" so to speak. If the baby's stomach is not distended, and he has a large soft stool infrequently this is not constipation requiring intervention. ...Read more

What should I do about constipation in a 1 week old infant?

What should I do about constipation in a 1 week old infant?

Constipation in baby: I would start by asking if the baby is actually constipated. Often babies (especially breast fed infants) don't stool as often. Many people think this means they are constipated. Some breast fed infants poop once a week! if the baby is gaining weight well and the stool is soft when it comes out then the baby is fine. If the stool is hard (like rabbit pellets) then you should talk to your doctor. ...Read more
