Ok, ladies, this post isn't for the squeemish. I'll apologize for the TMI up front.
My 4 month old little girl has been breastfeed since the day she was born. She started going longer and longer between poopy diapers since about her 5th week. She now goes 7-11 days without having a BM - but has plenty of wet diapers instead. When she does poop, it's the normal consistency and color. She doesn't strain or grunt or seem uncomfortable at all, but boy-oh-boy is the gas smelly! The pediatrician said to do anal stimulation (take her temp rectally) and then try a baby suppository. But she's not constipated, and I sure hate to start using suppositories to prompt progress. Rectal stimulation does nothing. My instinct says to be patient and wait. But I could use some reassurance from you guys. I want to believe she's just really efficient at digesting the breast milk and doesn't make much poo.
Can you please share with me if you've had your LO go this long without pooping, and if so, when might she outgrow it. I saw a prior post on this similar issue and it seemed to say that up to 7 days was normal. What are your experiences?
