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. If it is soft, the frequency of stooling is not important.Formula babies go more often, generally 1-3 times/day.. ...Read more

My 3 months old baby doesn't poop sometimes 24 hours or more and he has belly botton hernia, should I be concerned?

My 3 months old baby doesn't poop sometimes 24 hours or more and he has belly botton hernia, should I be concerned?

No worry....: Constipation in babies is not how often you poop, but consistency of poop. If stools are soft/mushy when they are passed, nothing to worry about. Only need to be concerned if stools are hard and formed. Belly button hernias are quite common - if you think about, everyone is born with one so the cord can protrude through the gap in the muscles. Very few to on to need any surgical intervention. ...Read more

3 month old breastfed baby ate a lot, then was being very fussy then had green very smelly poop. What could cause this?

3 month old breastfed baby ate a lot, then was being very fussy then had green very smelly poop. What could cause this?

Common: The list of causes for fussiness is endless, but pretty common for young infants.Stool color is defined by pigments added by the liver, which start out a dark green and change through lighter green/yellows and browns depending on how long it takes to move through digestion and how the germs act on it. The scenario is not uncommon or worrisome. ...Read more

3 month old pooping once a day started teething has been constipated for 2 days now. I've tried stimulation with a qutip Karo syrup apple baby food. ?

3 month old pooping once a day started teething has been constipated for 2 days now. I've tried stimulation with a qutip Karo syrup apple baby food.  ?

Constipation: Best not to use Karo syrup in a 3 month old because the immune system isn't mature yet. No Qtip stimulation. Baby products prune juice is a good idea. Make sure the baby is taking in fluids well. 2 days is not worrisome unless the baby is uncomfortable or the stools are hard and painful to pass. May be time to visit your pediatrician. ...Read more

Is creamy like peanut butter poop normal for 3 month old baby who hasn't pooped in a week but normally does every other day & more loose?

Is creamy like peanut butter poop normal for 3 month old baby who hasn't pooped in a week but normally does every other day & more loose?

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. OK if bottle fed too. ...Read more

My 3 month old sons poop has turned dark brown with white chunks in it. He is formula fed enfamil with baby oatmeal in it. His stools have increased?

Brown is OK!: Baby poop is lots of different colors and can change from day to day for any baby. One day brown, one day yellow, one green. The worrisome colors are dark black after the first few days of life (cuz your first poop is blackish meconium), red poop or pure white poop. I suppose purple would be weird too! as his digestive tract matures, consistency will also vary. And yes, baby poop stinks! ...Read more
