I started feeding rice cereal to my 4mth old in addition to breastmilk. His bowel movement is brown and not seedy and yellow. Is that normal?
Baby bowels. Brown, not seedy and not yellow is normal.
My 5 months old baby has not have a bowel movement in 7 days. She is breastfed and she is also having rice cereal. Should I worry?
No. As long as infant remains playful without vomiting or abdominal distention and had a soft stool on last bowel movement, it is unlikely baby has any serious problem inside abdomen. Wait it out for another 2-3 days. Infrequent bowel movement in breast-fed infants over 1 month old is fairly common.
