My 4 mo is on poop strike day number 7. My older daughter did the exact same thing at this age and I was told it was normal. She is exclusively breastfed.. She has been very happy up until tonight. My husband said she screamed "bloody murder" for almost 2 hours and finally fell asleep. He gave her her normal 4oz bottle (breastmilk) and that didn't soothe her. He said she seemed to be in pain. I didn't witness it and she is sleeping soundly now.
No fever, belly is soft, seemingly comfortable. Also, She has had wretched gas in the past few days; smells as foul as it gets.
Normal or calling pediatrician in the morning??? I say normal and she'll poop soon, but need some reassurance. Last BM she went 6 days before going, and before that she was an everyday girl.
Thanks in advance for your input.
