How many times will my baby go to the bathroom each day?

How many times will my baby go to the bathroom each day?

5-8: Starting around 4 days old babies should have about 5-8 wet diapers a day. Poop is another story. Some breastfeed babies stool after every feed which can be 8 times a day, some breastfed babies stool once every 5 days. As long as the stools are soft, both are fine. Formula fed babies tend to stool 2-5 times a day. When you start solids infants start stooling a little less often. ...Read more

How many times per day do I need to bathe my baby?

How many times per day do I need to bathe my baby?

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 more

Have to go to the bathroom after every meal and poop?

Reflex: You have an active gastrocolic reflex so that when food enters your stomach, it sets off a reflex that sends waves of contraction down your entire intestinal tract leading to a bowel movement. If you can't slow it down by experimenting with your diet, a medication like bentyl (dicyclomine) taken 1/2 hour before eating usually calms down this reflex. Discuss this with your physician. ...Read more

How can I help my 4 year old daughter poop easier? She trys to go numerous times before it will come and they are big

Impaction: Prolonged periods of time without a bowel movement (less than a week) are likely not dangerous for an otherwise healthy child, but can be quite uncomfortable and more difficult to address as more time passes. A glycerin suppository or Fleets enema are generally required at this stage to get things moving, followed by several weeks of stool softening, dietary modification and bowel retraining. ...Read more

Boys : Boys do tend to potty train later than girls. I hear terms like "difficult child" and "refuses to poop". My guess is that he picks up on this vibe as well. Sometimes if pushed too hard, a child will push back or will hold back. How about reading the "potty book" to him. There are some wonderful potty videos that are fun for kids to watch. If you can make this fun and get him invested, he may be more likely to play along. If he is pressured and faces anger, he is more likely to hold on to it. ...Read more
