Re: Constipated baby
Don't panic. After 6 weeks, exclusively breastfed babies may go as infrequently as once a week. You should not suspect constipation in an EBF baby unless:
- Baby has gone more than a week without pooping
- Baby seems to be in extreme discomfort when pooping or trying to poop (turns red, strains, cries in pain)
- The poop is dry, pellet-like, and hard enough to roll right off the diaper if you pick it up
I suggest putting baby in a warm bath. That often relaxes baby enough to let things fly.
