This is my first post, but I have spent a ton of time on this site since my little girl was born. She's now 10 weeks old and exclusively breastfed. We have had great success with BFing; she weighed 8lbs 11.7oz at birth and is now over 11lbs.
Until a few weeks ago she pooped very frequently but has now begun going several days between poops. I realize that this is normal, but it has now been 12 days since her last bowel movement and I am panicking. She is still having lots of wet diapers and is nursing well. She seems to be her usual self for the most part, besides being quite gassy. She also appears to be trying to poop at times - straining, grunting, turning red - but nothing is happening. When she tries she gets fussy and upset which makes me think she's in pain.
Our doctor suggested that we try a suppository to get things going, and we have done 2 but still nothing.
Any suggestions?? Is this normal? I'm going out of my mind worrying about her.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
