How Often Should A 3 Month Old Poop
Breast or formula ?: Breast fed infants can go a little every feed or overflow a diaper once a week. If it is soft when they go i don't worry about it. Formula fed babies usually have a more predictable pattern of daily stools. If stools are getting hard, i often try full strength prune juice, 1oz once or more/d.Takes about 3d to get things moving. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

My 3 month old only poops maybe once a day or day and a half.. Is that ok? She's not in pain or anything just checking..
Normal.: This is normal pattern of stooling. As babies get older, they do not poop as frequently. If you are breastfeeding exclusively, your baby may not poop as long as 8 days. This is still normal. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

My 3 month old who is breastfed only poops once every 5 days and by the last couple days she is so uncomfortable, what can I do to fix it or help her?
Breast feeds: Breast fed infants can go a little every feed or overflow a diaper once a week. If it is soft when they go i don't worry about it. Babies fuss for a lot of reasons including gas, so irregularity is not always the cause. If stools are getting hard, i often try full strength prune juice, 1oz once or more/d.Takes about 3d to get things moving. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
My formula fed 3 month old hasn't pooped in 2 days. She normally poops at least two times a day, and her stools are soft but thick.
Can be normal: As babies age their stool patterns can change and become less frequent. Going a few days without a stool is very common. If she is eating and acting normally, there is nothing to do (but wait for the blowout diaper when she does go ;) ) ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
My 3 month old keeps pooping and won't eat. She doesn't show signs that her stomach is hurting. What could be wrong?
Hard to tell: Babies can have a soft or loose bowel movement every feeding, or a couple of times a day, and still be normal. If she's not eating, check with her doctor to find out if she is sick. What milk is she taking? Has there been any change? Any fever. Baby's don't always show obvious signs of illness, but a change in eating or sleeping should be checked out. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
How long should my 3 month old (exclusively breast fed) go without pooping before it's a cause for concern?
Ask Dr. if 3-4 days: If a baby is eagerly and happily breastfeeding each day, if he has no tummy aches nor bloating, and if his poops are quite soft, then it is ok for him to poop only once every few days. He is digesting all the breastmilk, and using almost all of it to maintain and grow his body (leaving very little solid material to make poop). The water in the milk is absorbed and later urinated out as pee. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
My Breast fed 3 month old has 2-5 poops a day is this normal? She also only gains 2 oz a week.. Could this be causing low weight gain
Breathing feeding : Having 2-5 stools per day for a breast fed infant is normal, a baby can have a bowel movement after each feeding. But gaining 2oz per wk is not enough, she should gain 1/2 to 1 oz per day. What was her birth weright & what is her weight now? What does her pediatrician say? If you don't have enough breast milk you can suppliment with formula to help her gain weight. Good luck & enjoy your baby. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
