5 Month Old Poop
My formula fed 9 week old hasn't pooped in 5 days. He wets diapers & is gaining weight. Should i be worried?
What, me worry?: A 9-week-old baby who is acting alert and vigorous is probably fine. Weight gain, plenty of wet diapers, and a normal activity level are good indicators. If your baby's belly is swollen and tender, that needs evaluation now. Call your provider and ask how - or if -you may safely stimulate a bowel momement. You sound like a very conscientious parent.

Some breastfed babies have loose stools (a bit looser than spaghetti sauce). If she pushes her poop out, it will come out somewhat liquid. If she is very gassy, has smelly poop, or is not growing well, a doctor should evaluate for digestive problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 6 month old breast fed baby only drinks 5 ounces per bottle. She bottle feeds twice while I work for 8 hours. She is 18 pounds. She was born 8.5 oz?
By weight is fine: She is likely getting much more when nursing directly from the breast. While you might expect her take more from the bottle at this size, she may prefer the breast and baby foods (presuming she's being fed some). As long as she's wetting aces diapers in that 8 hrs, is happy after feeds , don't worry. Offer a cup with water, too- it's time to start learning. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

The best test of course is a urine sample obtained via catheter to be sent for urinalysis and culture. But, as mentioned above, in the absence of any other symptoms, no action is nece. ...Read more
My 5 month old daughter is screaming for 4 hours now hasn't pooped in 2 days I have tried feeding her changing her prunes peaches she will not stop?
The first goal is: to find out why she is screaming. If she has a fever this is worrisome, if her belly is tender when you gently push on it, this is worrisome too. If irregular bowel habits this can be helped easily. Most babies can have up to 7 or more bowel movements a day or as few as one every couple of days. You can try glycerin suppositories to aid in passing stools but if hard stools see your doc soon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
