Breastfed Baby Poops Once a Day

by Sheila Owen
(Norman, OK)

Question:


my baby is weaning off formula right now and is mostly breast feeding. Probably has half a meal in a bottle every 24 hours now.

He only has 1 bowel movement in 24 hours though. It's usually a really full diaper and it's very loose/liquidy and yellow. Is it ok to have only one bowel movement in 24 hours and be mostly breast fed?

Thank you!

Hi

A breastfed baby that is older than 6 weeks can either poop every time mom breastfeeds or once every 7 to 8 days.

So once you stop formula feeding all together, your baby might start pooping more or might only have a poop every few days.

Hope this answers your question
