This varies: A quick and simple fetal kick count method is to focus on counting for up to 2 hours and tallying 10 movements in that period. '10 movements in 2 hours'.

Depends: P.S. All babies tend to strain rather dramatically with stools at some point, probably because their brain is working hard to coordinate their intestinal muscles (which are still weak) and nerves. Plus they are laying flat most of the time, so they don't have help from gravity. As long as their stools are soft, the crying, pulling up of legs, turning red is normal and won't last forever. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers

If it seems that you are feeding all the time in those first few weeks, you may be and that can be perfectly normal if the baby is passing lots of stool. Enjoy the time with the baby. The feedings space out over time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Think 2-3 per week: Babies do not need daily baths. In fact, daily bathing can dry out babies' delicate skin. Instead, i would aim for two to three baths weekly. As long as a baby's diaper area is thoroughly cleaned during diaper changes, they really don't need more than this. You can gently clean in any skin folds with a warm washcloth as needed on non bath days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Ideally we should eat when we're hungry, but social norms have centered around 3 meals (or 4 in some countries) within less than a 12-hour period.

If you have medical condition, ask your doc about this. ...Read more

3 - 4: A young breastfed baby usually poops after every feeding or after every-other feeding (averaging 3-4 poops a day).

As long as a baby is normal in eating, growth, and development; and does not have constipation, bloating, or tummy aches; then the number of poops per day is not very important. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The bottom line is that growth/weight gain should be adequate, and the baby should appear well nourished, happy, and active. As far as any feeding problems, that can mean many different things, and i'd be happy to hear about specific questions or challenges you are encountering. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
