Hello. Our LO will be two weeks tomorrow. I had tried breastfeeding and pumping while in the hospital and it was a disaster (LO has a pouty chin that she tucks under and I apparently have flat nipples). Anyway, I was pumping as much as I could the first week and supplementing with formula. She is now 100% formula fed.
She was having 4 bowel movements a day in the beginning and then it tapered off to 3, then 2, then she finally had one after 2 days of nothing. She didn't have one yesterday and are hoping she does today. The doctor said to follow up if it has been 48 hours, so we don't need to call them yet.
I am just wondering if anyone else has a newborn that doesn't have bowel movements every day? She is gassy too so we have been giving her Mylicon drops. If she doesn't go today I will follow up with her ped tomorrow. Not sure if it is something with the formula? Everything I read said that it can be normal.
