Re: Constipated Baby
Very normal. After 6 weeks, it is normal for an exclusively breastfed baby to continue to poop several times a day, or to go as infrequently as once every week. You should not suspect constipation in a breastfed baby unless some or all of the following apply:
- baby seems to be uncomfortable when passing stool (turning red, straining, crying)
- stool is dry and hard enough to roll off the diaper
- baby is pooping less often than every 1-2 weeks
