Pooping in a child
My baby is five months old, and recently we introduced bottle feed to him, but he started pooping four times a day. I give him to bottle feed three times a day rest of the time I give him breast milk-. Is this normal?
Has Not Had Poop
by Dr. Rachael
You can try some home remedies before visiting your pediatrician. Some of the practical solutions that have worked very well for my kid are prune juice and apple juice. Just four ounces of prune juice helped in passing him motions and relieving his tummy ache.
If your baby is exclusively breastfed make sure you keep a tab on what you are eating. Many times, a mother's diet affects babies digestive system.
Baby does not poop every day
My baby is bottle fed and does not poop every day. Is it normal?
Hasn't had a poop Suggestions?
by Worried mom....
My son is almost four months old and is completely breastfed and hasn't had a poop in 5 days. I was told to give him a suppository, and if it was to happen again, not let it go for more then three days.
I have read multiple articles, some saying it can take up to 7-10 days for my little guy to have a bowel movement... I don't want him to rely on the suppositories to poo that's why I haven't given it to him; I'm kind of hoping he goes on his own...
I've tried tummy massages, cycling his legs and bathing him, he's passing gas no problem and is generally his usual happy self but no bowel movement... Any suggestions as to what I should do?
I really don't want to give him a suppository again I think it was traumatizing enough for both of us the first time...
Doesn't poop everyday
My four months baby is both breastfeeding and bottle feeding. He doesn't poop every day, but he is actually a very happy child. He does not cry when he poops, and his stool is not hard. Is this normal?

My daughter is 4months old, and she is exclusively breastfeeding, nothing else and she seems to have trouble pooping severely red in the face while pushing, and rays and her poop isn't the seedy mustard runny stuff its mustard yellowish green and mushy not runny, and it's hardly anything if all.

3 months baby not pooping
Hello, the article is terrific!
But I have a question about my 11-week baby. I am Breastfeeding. He used to poop easily when he was born. Since he is 4-5 weeks, he reduced to poop (even with a continuous dose of lactulose, he poops once a week that too with struggle and the texture is thick paste kind of and yellow)
He puts a lot of pressure, cries, and strains and seems as if he wants to poop but can't. I can see a loss of appetite as well.
Then he gets tired of pushing and sleeps for 15-20 min. Then wakes up and starts pushing again. I did everything... Massage, warm bath, lactulose, cycling.
What should I do? Can there be any problem in intestinal track? Or any kind of swelling from inside anus from too much pushing when unsuccessful?
I was wondering that if he pushes with whole energy every day and the texture is not like pebbles, then why after a week of straining he is doing. Please help

Have to return to work - worried baby wont poop
by Proud mommy
My baby is ten weeks old and HAS to be breastfeeding when she had to poop. I go back to work in 9 days and worry about whether she will poop when she takes a bottle. I don't want her to get sick. She mainly breastfeeds - usually, give her breastmilk in a bottle AM/PM.
