My formula fed 9 week old hasn't pooped in 5 days. He wets diapers & is gaining weight. Should i be worried?

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. Lucky baby. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Signs of dehydration in a baby as illustrated, are reason for medical attention. ...Read more

My 5 month old breast fed daughter consistently has liquid bowel movements, she's gaining weight well, are liquid poops distinct from diarrhea?

My 5 month old breast fed daughter consistently has liquid bowel movements, she's gaining weight well, are liquid poops distinct from diarrhea?

May not be diarrhea: If a baby is eating, behaving, and growing fine... But has loose poops that can squirt out of her butt, she may be normal, especially if breastfed. 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 more

Stools: this can be normal, for breast fed infants, they can have a small bowel movement after each feeding, as long as it has some solids in it & not to watery or large soon she will start sold food & that might bind her stools, if she is growing & gaining weight that a very good sign. it is always good to check with her pediatrician. good luck. ...Read more

The slower, more likely browner.Loose means less water extracd. ...Read more

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?

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 more

My 5 month old pee smells like acid?

My 5 month old pee smells like acid?

Urine odor: Generally speaking, we don't necessarily have to be concerned about the odor of our baby's urine. In the absence of any other symptoms (ie: fever, vomiting, poor feeding, irritability), there is no cause for concern. 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?

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 more
