dirty nappies a day

by Joanna

My baby is 4 and a half months and I have introduced one formula bottle a day, which he can throw a lot of it up as he has a reflux problem.

We have gone from 3/4 dirty nappies a day to not going for up to five or six days. Is this normal.

It's also very painful to breastfeed on the right side, especially after feeding him I can have darting pain down into the nipple for up to two hours after a feed. Can you advise, thank you

bowel movement and pain in breast
by: Tracy

Hi Joana

It is perfectly normal for a baby that is "mostly breastfed" to have a bowel movement every ten days, since yours is getting in a bottle of formula too, six days is fine. As long as baby seems happy and healthy and does not have stools that are hard.

About the pain in your breast...have you always had the pain while breastfeeding or is it something that is recent?

pain after breastfeeding
by: Joanna

Hi Tracy

Thanks for your answer that had put my mind at rest. no the pain in my right side has only developed in past few weeks it feels bruised to touch underneath the breast and it is not hard or lumpy.
