How Many Times Should A 3months Baby Poop A Day
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

At least twice: I recommend brushing your child's teeth at least twice daily for two minutes. As they get used to having this, allow them to do part of the brushing, then go back and help them with what they may have missed. This gets them involved with their own care and lets you supervise until better hand motor skills develop! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Interesting question: At 2 wks, a kid does not make bo or run thru mud.S/he can often be cleaned with localized sponging. If you avoid lotions (they attract dust and sour), a bath 2-3x/wk in tepid water is more than adequate for most infants.

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

12-18 hours usually: Babies sleep almost 16-20 hours when first born, so in theory they could do nothing but eat and sleep and they'd be fine. As they get a little older, that can go down, but generally 12 to 16 hours is a normal level. The real question is, how are they when they are awake? If alert, happy, and energetic, then they are doing fine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
