Baby Has Not Pooped In 3 Days
6 month old baby hasn't pooped in three days. Mostly breastfed, supplementing w formula. Not acting uncomfortable but has smelly gas?
My two months old baby has very slimmy poop for three days now. She poops at least four times daily with hard noisy push anytime she wants to poop?
Don't worry: Unless the number of BM's have greatly increased and she is acting fussy and not eating well. You didn't mention if she is breastfed, and if that is the case , it's possible that some change in your diet is responsible. Watch for the next few days, and in most cases these changes resolve without an explanation. See your doctor if not resolving ...Read more
My three-month-old BF baby has normally had yellow colored poop. But tonight she just had a green poop is that normal?
Breast milk poo: The stool of breast fed babies can vary in color and consistency without cause for concern, provided there is no blood, fever, vomiting, irritability, abdominal distension or loss of weight. If other children in the home or daycare are having similar symptoms, it may be due to infection. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: It is very normal for babies to skip days pooping. It is quality, not quantity, that determines constipation in infants. If when she does poop it is soft/mushy/runny, then its ok for her to go days in between poops. Some breast fed babies are just so efficient at digesting the breast milk that they don't make much waste, and therefore, not much poop. ...Read more
My 2 month old formula fed baby has not pooped for 4 days now, but seems ok. I'm worried about what's causing it?
No - usually: Not all babies poop every day. Constipation is defined more by stool consistency, not frequency. So a baby that has hard rabbit pellet poop but goes 2-3 times a day is constipated, but a baby that has soft, mushy poop but only goes every 3-4 days is not constipated and that's normal and not uncommon. Some babies have efficient GI tracts and just don't make that much poop, so don't need to go daily. ...Read more
3 monthbreatfed baby hasn't pooped in 7 days and when he finally did same yellow color but very thick and creamy like peanut butter, normal?
Probably OK: It is not unusual for babies to have change in stool pattern as they grow. . Also, it is normal for breastfed babies to have longer periods of time with no stools. Breast milk is the perfect baby food, thus there is less "waste" so to speak. If the baby's stomach is not distended, and he has a large soft stool infrequently this is not constipation requiring intervention. ...Read more
