Hello there. I am a new poster here looking for some sensible thoughts on this one.
My son is 11 weeks old tomorrow…. Since 8 weeks his pooping has dropped considerably. He went 3 days suddenly .. then 7 days.. then 7.. now 11 days. I know that BF babies do that and that isn’t the problem
He seems bothered by it really bad at times and not t all at other times. Sometimes he SCREAMS and then farts and is OK….. not great but OK. But EVERY fart he has stinks.. I don’t mean cute stink I mean really gross . And of course I can’t escape them.
He is a great eater.. he eats every 2 hours during the day and gets lots. He is a very healthy 14 lbs…. LOL…. He only eats of one breast because I produce VERY well. I have another son that I BF as well the exact same way.
I have heard the theory that when they push with their tummies they tend to squeeze their anus shut as well and this causes the incredibly frustrating straining… and makes sense to me…..
So what makes his gas stink so bad and is there a way to fix it?? Or when will he start getting more regular poops again. WHAT CAN I DO to help him. He gets so unhappy!
