My daughter is 9 weeks old. We had some issues in the beginning, but it got better. She is nursing like a champ. The issue is she does not poop. Every bowel movement since she was 4 weeks old has been stimulated, either by the thermometer trick, and now laxatives. She was 7 lbs at birth and 12 lbs this wednesday at 9 wks. She has only pooped 5 times in the last 4 weeks. This is gross but it started like peanut butter, then fudge, now it is truly formed stool, very solid. SHe is my 4th and I know that this should not start this early. The DR wants me to give her 1 oz of pear juice mixed with 1 oz of water every day now. BUT I have 2 problems with that . 1.) nipple confusion and 2.) can her tummy handle juice. and also WHY would she be this constipated this year.
