Re: Excessive Pooping (or is there no such thing?)
At 2 weeks old, there's no such thing as excessive pooping. Many babies move their bowels every time they nurse, because putting something in at the top of the digestive system stimulates them to move something out at the bottom. And a lot of them poop in between feedings, too!
There's absolutely no way I'd stretch out feedings at just 2 weeks old. It's a ticket to lowered supply and possibly to a baby who isn't gaining enough weight. If you have oversupply and fast letdowns, there are better ways to manage the problem, like adopting different nursing positions to slow milk flow and, if the problem is significant enough, feeding on a single side per feeding and/or for several feedings in a row in order to reduce supply to a more manageable level and increase hindmilk intake. The latter approach is called block feeding, and it's something you want to do only if you really have oversupply. You can have a fast letdown and normal supply!
So, what color are your baby's poops? Don't be afraid to be descriptive!
