4 Days Old Baby Not Pooping
My 14 days old baby is keep on straining when shes passing stool? Is she constipated? Shes passing a stool 4 times a day and shes on form
How fed ????: A breast fed infant may stool a bit every feeding or an overflow diaper once a week. If it is soft it is not constipation. If formula fed, the pattern is more likely to be a few daily or at least every other day. If stools are soft & baby feeds well & plays, there is no reason to be concerned. Babies make noise & push stool with their breathing muscle since their belly muscles are weak. ...Read more
My 5 days old baby is having loose motions (passed stool 12 times in the last 24 hrs). What should we do?
Maybe,maybe not: Breast fed kids can stool a bit every feed or have a single blow out once a week. Formula babies & those fed solids usually stool at least daily. If baby is not drinking enough to pee every 6 hrs & acting otherwise sick, an office visit is needed to sort out the issue. If eating & drinking well & playing normally, you may just need to give it a day or so & add prune juice to the liquids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My baby is 25 days old. She didn't poop from yesterday. She had atleast 10 wet diapers though. Is tat a concern?
Not a concern...: As long as she's acting normally, eating fine without vomiting (some spitup is normal), and she doesn't have a fever, then no worries. Babies bowel habits (and adults for that matter) are highly variable - some are 2 a day kind of babies, some are every 3-4 days. If you switched from breastmilk to formula, that can sometimes alter the stool frequency. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
