Re: 1 week old, infrequent stools
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby! Given the pediatrician's lack of concern, and the good weight gain, color, alertness, and wet diaper output, I would think that this is a situation to keep a careful eye on but not to freak out about. Keep a careful diaper log and don't be afraid to drop by the pediatrician's office for a weight check.
Did the baby pass his first meconium stool within 24-48 hours of birth? And did he transition to normal breastfed baby poops (loose, curdy, yellowish, not sticky) before he went on his poop strike?
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
