I can't believe I am actually posting something about my newborns bowel movements. My son is 4 1/2 and he had the same issues during the year that I nursed him. My daughter was at a friends with me today, she is 6 weeks old, and had a bowel movement. The noise actually scared my friend it was so loud. I remember with my son, you could be in another room and hear the shooting noice, like a very, very loud wet fart.
My friend nursed both of her kids as well and claimed she had NEVER heard of such a noise. Now I am wondering if this is normal or some type of gassy issue? If someone could please let me know if this is normal, she does it almost every time she goes. It has actually waking me up from a sound sleep.
