Re: Took Airborne to help with my cold and now my baby can't poop
Around 5.5-6 months, my kid went from pooping every day to pooping once a week, and the gas she passed could clear a room. It wasn't due to Airborne or excess Vitamin A or even to solids, because she wasn't eating any. It was just a normal thing that happens to babies. At a certain point, babies' digestive systems mature and they begin to digest breastmilk very completely, leaving little residue. A baby can safely go a week without pooping as long as she doesn't seem to be in pain and you don't see her straining to poop or passing little hard pellets. As long as what finally comes out is nice and soft, it's not considered constipation.
In short, I wouldn't worry. If your baby seems uncomfortable, is straining to poop, is having hard poops, or goes more than a week without pooping, then you should call the doc.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
