Sippy Hasnt Poo
Get him help...: "normal" bowel frequency in america ranges (in a bell-curve distribution) from 3/day to 1/3-4 days. Your friend's son is clearly outside the bell curve. Lots of possibilities here, particularly based on the age of the child. If the history is accurate, then at the very least a physical exam with digital rectal check & a belly x-ray will likely be performed so appropriate treatment can be offered. ...Read more

Let Pediatrician kno: You can start by letting your pediatrics know. You can try an enema if you know how to do it and have experience. Otherwise make sure your child gets lots of fluids to drink. Let your pediatrician know so that a regimen of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) or some plan is started to keep bowels soft. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

May not be necessary: If your baby is breastfed and feeding well, urinating normally, and acting well, it can be normal to skip a few days before stooling. If your baby is formula fed, it is a little less usual to skip days, but can still happen. Generally, it would be recommmended to wait. However if your baby seems uncomfortable, not feeding, urinating less, or you are concerned, you should see your pediatrician. ...Read more
I haven't pooped in several days. I tryed chocolate laxitive and suppository and hasn't helped. What else can I try? I normally poop every day
Don't help, he's ok: Not all babies poop every time you breastfeed, in fact, the normal range for a stooling interval is anywhere from a few hrs, to weekly!! Try not to fixate on how long it's been since the last poop, rather give it a few days, and if nothing is happening, a tsp or 2 of Karo corn syrup in the bottle should loosen up the stool to allow regular pooping. ...Read more

My newborn hasn't poo'd in 2 days..
I give her both formula and breast, she doesn't seem to be getting satisfied on breast alone. what should I do?
Relax: Breast fed babies can have a little smear with each feed or have one big blowout every 7-10 days.Bottle fed kids will poo more predictably & should go daily. If the poo is soft it is not considered constipation. I don't get hung up on babies timing, If they wet a diaper every 4-6 hours they are usually getting enough. Hang in there. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can breastfeeding mask malabsorption issues. My seventeen month old child's poop has lots of undigested food in it also hasn't gained weight in months?
Can't tell for sure: but this is a serious issue which should be evaluated by your pediatrician because malnutrition may permanently impact your child's life. It does sound like that he has a digestive disorder. ...Read more
Is creamy like peanut butter poop normal for 3 month old baby who hasn't pooped in a week but normally does every other day & more loose?
Probably OK: It is not unusual for babies to have change in stool pattern as they grow. . Also, it is normal for breastfed babies to have longer periods of time with no stools. Breast milk is the perfect baby food, thus there is less "waste" so to speak. If the baby's stomach is not distended, and he has a large soft stool infrequently this is not constipation requiring intervention. OK if bottle fed too. ...Read more
I'm not sure if I saw dry blood in my stool. I'm under 50, and this hasn't happened before. If it is cancer, will It bleed every time I go poo?
See below: If you are 19, it is highly unlikely that you have colon cancer. Even with cancer, blood is not always present in the stool. At your next visit to you doctor you discuss the issue. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
