My week old baby has been sleeping so much the last two days, and not eating as much per feeding. He hasn't been fussy but grunting a lot. Pooping n urinating just fine too. Is he ok? What's wrong?

My week old baby has been sleeping so much the last two days, and not eating as much per feeding. He hasn't been fussy but grunting a lot. Pooping n urinating just fine too. Is he ok? What's wrong?

Depends: Not sure what you mean by grunting but that word bothers me a bit. The sleep, eating and pooping sounds ok. Does his breathing sound ok? If concerned I would not hesitate to take your baby to the pediatrician. Grunting is not a normal baby sound but it might be just your description for a normal sound. ...Read more

6 week old baby normally poops once a day has been pooping after every feed the last day. Formula fed, poos are mustard colour and watery. Take 2 dr?

:poop:: It is okay for a baby to poop after every feed. The watery consistency does not sound normal however and the baby may have a light stomach virus. I would feed the baby two feedings with pedialyte instead of formula. If the watery poop continues after switching back to formula, I would take the baby to be evaluated or if there is associated vomiting, fever or other symptoms. ...Read more

My 8 week old baby have brownish mucus in her poop. What is that and where do it come from?

My 8 week old baby have brownish mucus in her poop. What is that and where do it come from?

Mucous in the stool: Is this mucous a one time event or happening a lot? Is the baby having many (10-12) stools a day and are they watery? Are you breastfeeding or formula feeding? Do you see frank blood in the stool? These are all important questions in trying to figure out if this is milk-protein allergy. I would see you pediatrician for evaluation. ...Read more

I have a 7-week-old baby. She'd been pooping at least 1x day, but it has been 3 days since she pooped. She does pass gas & has wet diapers. Is it ok?

I have a 7-week-old baby. She'd been pooping at least 1x day, but it has been 3 days since she pooped. She does pass gas & has wet diapers. Is it ok?

Depends on situation: If baby is breast fed they may stool a little smear every feeding or one big crib full once a week. Breast milk is so well digested that it may not leave much behind for poo to form. If it is soft, the frequency of stooling is not important.Formula babies go more often. Your babies pattern sounds pretty normal. ...Read more

My seven week old baby poops once every other day, is this normal?

My seven week old baby poops once every other day, is this normal?

Yes: As long as stools are soft/mushy/liquidy when the baby does poop, the pattern you describe is perfectly normal. Some babies are just so efficient at digesting their mom;s milk that they may not make a lot of waste product (poop), so don't stool as often. Many breast fed babies give little runny skid marks with each feed. Consistency of the poop matters, not frequency. ...Read more

I have a 3 week old baby and I breast feed and do formula, he be fuzzy and getting red from his face and he didn't poop yesterday or today is it norm?

Hard or pellet-like: Stools are a sign of constipation. If an infant of 6wks. Or younger strains to pass soft stool, it can be normal. The smooth muscle of the intestines is not yet coordinated to propel its contents, so they may draw up their legs, grunt, turn red in the face & use voluntary abdominal muscles to assist. Solely breast-fed babies hardly ever have hard stools; adding formula can make them harder. ...Read more

6 weeks old with possible digestive problems hello I have a 6 week old baby and he has been vomiting every night and during the day as well he sweats a lot he is very gassy and and is very hard to burp sometimes he won't even burp at all his poop is a pea

6 weeks old with possible digestive problems hello I have a 6 week old baby and he has been vomiting every night and during the day as well he sweats a lot he is very gassy and and is very hard to burp sometimes he won't even burp at all his poop is a pea

Vomiting: Vomiting in a six week old infant needs to be evaluated by a doctor promptly. It could be something common such as gastroesophageal reflux disease or it could be something more serious such as pyloric stenosis (a 6 week old boy is the prime age and gender for this). Either way, you should call his doctor and have him seen as soon as possible. Once he has been examined, your doctor will be able to give appropriate suggestions on how to treat him. Good luck! ...Read more

How often & how much should a 2 week old baby be eating?

How often & how much should a 2 week old baby be eating?

Newborn feeding: Try not to focus on each individual feed, but what baby takes over 24 hours. Just like you and i, our appetite is different at each meal and appropriate growth really involves the big picture rather that each feed. That being said, a 2 week old should be taking about 26 ounces a day of formula or breast milk. Breast being best, this is feeding every 2-3 hours for 15 minutes on each breast. ...Read more
