Mild intervention: It's not uncommon for stool to firm up around a month, even if you're breast feeding.

My sisters new 6 day old baby breaths really fast maybe since he was born. Is it bc he cant go to the bathroom or could something be wrong?

Baby breathing: Babies breath fast. A respiratory rate of 60 breaths a minute is normal. That's 1 breath every second! If the baby has not been in yet for his first post-hospital check-up, then he needs to be seen today. If he had his check up and all was fine at that visit, you need to relax. If poor feeding, then back to doctor. ...Read more
