    Default no poopys? x-post

    so, my daughter is now 6 weeks old and hasn't pooped in a week! she has been an every other day pooper since 4 weeks...but nothing in 8 days...she's nursing tons, doesn't seem bothered, and is still having 8-10 wet diapers a day. is this reason for concern? anyone else experience this? thanks so much!!!

    i've heard about babies developing their own cycle---
    but 8 days seems a little long.
    my friend's baby poops every 3 days.
    i would call your doctor and just ask.

    I had the same thing happen. My LC said that BF babies can sometimes go 7-10 days without pooping. My LO had been going twice a day then all of the sudden only twice a week. If you're worried call your pediatrician, at the very least it will make you feel better. HTH!

    My LO did that just last week, well he went on Monday and didnt go again until Thursday. My friends baby actually went 19 days without pooping. can u imagine? her ped gave her lax but said to wait until the three weeks hit. I couldnt believe it. I know how scary it can be. Hugs.
