    Default gassiness and poops

    My 6 week old has the smelliest farts... up until a few days ago, she was pooping multiple times a day... I started to notice that she's not pooping every day, in fact hasn't pooped in maybe 3-4 days...

    I've read this is normal, but I still worry it's not... I didn't breastfeed my first child so I don't have any personal experience with this....

    Is the gas and the lack of frequent poops normal?

    thank you !

    For me it's normal. At around 4 weeks my lo started to poop around 1/day. And sometimes he has really "hard" farts b4 a poop. I know sometimes, the farts are from something I ate though....

    I think all bfing moms have had at least 1 poop question (rather we want to mentioned it or not)

    When my baby was little, his fart and poop would smell really bad whenever I have eaten eggs. I dont know if there are other food that can also cause smelly farts/poop. Oh and my LO went 3-4days without a poop... Very normal.
