Re: Constipated baby wont nurse
with Andrea. Don't suspect constipation in an exclusively breastfed infant unless:
- it has been more than a week since she last pooped
- when she does poop, the poop can be described as dry, hard, formed, or pellet-like
- baby appears to be in severe discomfort when she poops, turning red, screaming in pain
Can you tell us more about the fussy nursing, mama? Maybe we can help you figure out the cause, if it's not actually constipation that is to blame.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
