from 4 poopy diapers to none...

Normally LO has 3-4 poopy diapers a day, yesterday she didn't poop for 24 hrs and then had a major blow out. And now she hasn't pooped in 24 hrs again, but she doesn't seem uncomfortable or anything. Its pretty normal for BF babies to not poop very often, right?

Re: from 4 poopy diapers to none...

  • BF babies can go for a week to 10 days between poops.  As long as your LO doesn't seem uncomfortable or have distended abdomen, no big deal.

    DD has been pooping only 1x per week for the last four weeks. Word of warning - when they do poop, it's horrifying.  Keep extra outfits and bags when you go out.  DD has needed an immediate bath each time.

  • Yep. Mine went from 4-5 a day to only going every 3 days or so. I've never been so happy for my cloth diapers, the poo when she goes, is unbelievable.

    After almost 2 years, a bleak multiple-factor infertility diagnosis, a miracle surprise BFP while waiting to start treatment, SUA and resolved IUGR, the best thing that ever happened to us is finally here!

  • Totally normal. My DD went from several poops a day to now only every 2-3 days. I hate it though it stresses me out and I wish she would go back to one a day at the very least. 
  • My baby has been pooping everyday, but when she was in the hospital, the pediatrician mentioned that she often has parents come in worried about their BF babies not pooping... she said that because breastmilk is such perfect food, there isn't as much waste... it all gets used...as long as there are wet diapers, (and like PP said, no signs of discomfort/swollen belly etc) then you should be good to go.  If you are still worried you could mention it at your next appt.
