My baby is not pooping anymore. She pooped right after birth and the first two days or so but no more after that.
She is gassy and seems to be fine otherwise- she's alert at times throughout the day, she nurses very often and looks fine.
Her birth weight was 8lbs 5 oz 21 inches. She went down to 7lbs 4 oz at 6 days old and as of Tuesday (July 3rd) she was 7 lbs 13 oz.
Her dr. told me to give her a glycerin suppository and I did and she pooped but not again on her own. I gave her another suppository on Saturday June 30th and she pooped but again has not pooped again on her own since then.
I'm starting to only nurse her on one breast in order to ensure she gets the hindmilk but I'm not sure if I should be concerned.
I forgot to add that we did have problems with nursing at first. My nipple was cracked and we stopped nursing on that breast for 2 days so it could heal and I was only able to express a little milk so my husband gave her a little formula as she didn't seem satisfied with the little I expressed and the other breast. We went to a lactation consultant and have been bf-ing exclusively since.
Thanks in advance for advice.
