Poopy Diapers - 3 Week Old

How many poopy diapers should a 3 week old have?  She did have 5-6/day and a few days ago she suddenly went to 1 or 2.  Is that normal?  I'm calling the pedi tomorrow, but just wondered what everyone else thought.

    There were days when my DD would go with every feeding and days where she would only go 2 or 3 times.  I would hate those days because I knew she would have gushers the next few days to catch up.  For my LO this was and still is her normal.  Hope that helps!

  • Slowly slowing down.  Was 8-9x/day, now down to 4-5x/day.  BF infants range from 3-4/day to once every 2-3 days.  Not something to worry or call about unless the poop is hard/dry.
  • DS started having less poopy diapers around 5 weeks. It started to only be once or twice a day and now he's only going once every three or so days. As long as LO doesn't seem uncomfortable and is having enough wet diapers it should be fine.

  • Wow! You all change a lot of poopy diapers! LOL. DD poops every 2-3 days! It is just her cycle.
