    Now she is very fussy... Could she be constipated???

    Exclusively breastfed babies do not get constipated.

    Has she been pooping frequently normally but just not yet today? I'm confused a little. At 12 days old you generally see frequent stools yes. How many wets? And were they very wet or just a little? Most likely it's fine.

    At least 9 wets.... Fully saturating the diapers. She has gone 3-4 times in previous days. Even more some days. She is passing gas. Also she gained all of her weight back by day 6 and her stool changed from meconium to yellow 2 days before that. So I know she was getting enough milk. And with having as many wets I woud think she is okay but my son had a bm with every feed from what I remember. Thanks for yOur help!!

    Some babies just don't poop as often even in the first month. If her weight gain is fine and you are getting ones, I wouldn't worry.

    No worries, her weight and wets are perfect some babies don't poop as much...totally normal.
