How Many Times Per Day Should My Baby Poop
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
3 - 4: A young breastfed baby usually poops after every feeding or after every-other feeding (averaging 3-4 poops a day). As the weeks go by, babies tend to poop less often, some twice a day while others once every-other 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
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'. Babies move throughout the day, with movement peaking at night. The quality of that movement changes as the baby grows and periods of rest also change. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
On demand: 8-12 times a day(which doesn't mean every 2-3 hours as is sometimes said), but many infants feed much more than that, since breastfeeding is so much more than food. 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
5 kicks per hour: After 28 weeks or so most patients report 5 movements per hour when they are doing "kick counts." to do kick counts correctly you should be lying down in a quiet place without distractions like the tv.

Baby burps: If your baby is a "gulper" when she eats or if she has had a spell where she cried alot, she has swallowed more air and needs more frequent burping. There is not an exact right number of times, but remember, air that doesn't come up as a burp comes out the other end as - well, you know what! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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. If a poor feeder & not wetting diapers at least every 6 hours, i would have her checked. ...Read more
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. Many people benefit from eating 4-6 "mini meals" a day to prevent low blood sugar or help control sugar or because they've had surgical procedures to limit size of stomach or for tumors. If you have medical condition, ask your doc about this. ...Read more
Depends.........: "normal" depends on the individual. If you normally urinate 6 times a day, then that is normal for you. In another person, 6 times a day may be abnormal if they usually urinate 3 times a day. If you notice a change in frequency from your "normal, " consult your physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Weight gain is key: Feeding patterns of infants vary with age, and from one baby to another. 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

Let baby sort it out: The addition of solids to the diet is not meant to displace the nutrition of breast milk or formula. It is a way to teach a kid to transition to a new feeding source.The value is in learning to handle textures and swallow a different type of feed.Offer your pastey food at the beginning of the feed and when baby has had a reasonable training session, follow with the milk.She'll sort it out. ...Read more

Training baby: The goal of introducing solids is to help baby learn a new feeding method & transition them to the table.A simple rice cereal made up as a paste is a good starter food.
