    Re: No poop in 6 days

    My DD only had a poopy diaper once every 7-10 days from the times she was 2 months until we started solids. Unless it's hard, it's not a problem.
  3. Re: Another question about the thrush ointment

    Re: Why Am I In So Much Pain?

    It sounds like it may be thrush. It's an overgrowth of yeast in your nipple & breast. Here's several articles on it:
