Is it normal for my baby to breastfeed and not have a bowel movement for days?

Is it normal for my baby to breastfeed and not have a bowel movement for days?

Yes: 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 more

Is it normal not to feel my baby move by the 19th week?

Yes: Yes. At first the kicks you notice will be few and far between. In fact, you may feel several movements one day and then none the next. Although your baby is moving and kicking regularly, many of his jerks and jolts aren't yet strong enough for you to feel. But later in the second trimester, those reassuring kicks will become stronger and more regular. ...Read more

Don't expect it: Random movement of the arms and legs in both the waking and sleeping periods are expression of a normal nervous system.The brain sends out random messages to the motor nerves to flex or extend to preserve muscle mass and tone.Without these events, the muscles would weaken like yours would if you were placed in a cast or splint. ...Read more

Is it normal for my stomache to not hurt but for it to feel wierd in early pregnancy?

Depends: There are a lot of things that change both chemically and physically in early pregnancy. It depends on what you mean by early.

All of these can make the "tummy" feel "weird". ...Read more

My infant won't make a bowl movement unless I stick a thermometer in her rectum and move it around. Is this normal? How do I get her to go on her own?

My infant won't make a bowl movement unless I stick a thermometer in her rectum and move it around. Is this normal? How do I get her to go on her own?

Bowel Movements: She will go on her own when she is ready to go. The biggest mistake we as parents make is thinking our babies have to go everyday. If you keep stimulating her with the thermometer, she will get to the point she will only go when she has that stimulus. So stop doing that. Some babies go multiple times a day, some go everyday, some go once a week. Adults do that too. Be patient. ...Read more

Fussy baby: A pediatrician's evaluation and input are necessary.

Given butter contains trans fat and cholesterol (good for myelin though), is it advisable to include (10g/day) in 1.5yo normal-weighing infant's diet?

I changed the formula on my 3month old from enfamil infant to enfamil a.R he passes stools 5 times a day now: yellow thicker w/ mucus is that normal?

Yes: The difference between the two formulas is that the ar contains a rice starch to "thicken" the formula a bit so that the baby doesn't spit up as much. This can increase fiber content in the stool, making the stools a bit thicker. 5 poops a day for a 3 month old is totally normal. Babies poop a lot! ...Read more
