    Default 3rd baby & different poop

    My baby, since birth, does not pass many stools. She goes about 1-2 days without a poopy diaper. I know that not having many dirty diapers is a sign of not enough intake, but she has been gaining weight since birth (she's 7 weeks now) and has wet diapers at every feeding (about 8-10). She just doesn't seem to poop, and when she does her stools are liquid. It's still a golden color, but it's liquid. She is a happy baby, she doesn't appear to be struggling with gas pains or digestive problems. Should the consistency of her stools and the frequency be cause for concern?

    Welcome to the forum!

    Did your baby pass her meconium within a normal time period? And how has your baby's weight gain been? If she passed her meconium on time and has been gaining weight normally, I don't think the stool frequency is cause for concern. Some babies are just infrequent poopers. Many babies fall into a pattern where they poop as little as once every week, sometimes even once every 2 weeks. Most babies don't get to that point until 6 weeks or beyond, but some babies will poop infrequently even before the 6 week point.
