Normal 4 some: Your typical breast fed baby can have a little poo smear every feeding or one giant blowout every 7-10 days. If soft, i don't consider it constipation.Wetting every 6 hours or more & feeding vigorously are signs of good basic health. All babies pull legs & arms in when fussing as a reflex.Grunting is normal, they have no social graces. ...Read more

Breast fed kids: Breast fed infants can stool a little every feed or overflow a diaper once a week. If it is soft when they go it is not constipation. If stools are getting hard, i often try full strength prune juice, 1oz once or more/d.Takes about 3d to get things moving. Solids like applesauce, rice cereal or bananas often slow things down & constipate a baby. Peaces, pears, & barley are less constipating. ...Read more

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 more
