4 month old baby afraid to poop?

Other causes: A four month old does not have bowel control where he is afraid to poop. You dont mention it, but if you are breast feeding an infant can go as long as a week without pooping and is within the realm of normality. If he is on f ormula he maybe constipated by too much formula. ...Read more

My 4 month old baby has not passed poo for 4 days now he is on breast milk and formular, is that normal?

My 4 month old baby has not passed poo for 4 days now he is on breast milk and formular, is that normal?

NORMAL: Breast fed babies can have bowel movement from 6-8 times/day to once every 4-7 days. Both normal. If ur child is not uncomfortable, don't worry. Formula may be changed to 'whey protein' based, e.g. Good start. Whey protein increases stool bulk, so s/he will poo more often. Again, if the baby is not uncomfortable, not to worry, no change needed. Talk to baby's doc reg starting solid food. ...Read more

Breastfeeding and my 4 month old baby boy hasn't had a stool movement in 2 days. Should i worry? What should I do? I've tried prune juice to help.

Breastfeeding and my 4 month old baby boy hasn't had a stool movement in 2 days. Should i worry? What should I do? I've tried prune juice to help.

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 more

1 month old, formula feed infant has dark green poop that smells like skunk (sometimes stringy looking)...baby is gassy as well. Is this normal?

Could be: The first thing I would want to make sure is that your child is gaining weight appropriately and thriving. If that is the case, there are numerous things that could be of help, such as different formulas. That decision can be best made with your child's doctor who will know what formula your child is and/or has been on. Good luck. ...Read more

My 4 month old baby gets histerical once I put his infant carrier in the car. He won't stop crying turning blue and shaking. What should I do ?

My 4 month old baby gets histerical once I put his infant carrier in the car. He won't stop crying turning blue and shaking. What should I do ?

Keep him safe in car: At four months he is too young for a real temper tantrum. While he may get agitated by the car seat's restrictive environment, his safety in the car is paramount for him to be transported in any other way in the car. You may want to have someone else sit beside him not to make him so lonely. ...Read more

Ate cookie with molasses. Scared I dropped cookie crumbs and my 4 month old possibly got them on hand/ into her mouth. Could she get infant botulism?

Ate cookie with molasses. Scared I dropped cookie crumbs and my 4 month old possibly got them on hand/ into her mouth. Could she get infant botulism?

Possible: It is possible to get botulism but it is unlikely. Watch out for symptoms 18 - 36hrs after ingestion. Symptoms in infants are lethargy, weakness, poor feeding, weak cry. Constipation is usually the first symptom to occur. There is nothing for you to do now except observation. If your baby seems to be floppy or develops any of the above symptoms, you need to go to the nearest ER. ...Read more
