  1. #1

    Default Too much poop

    I ebf my 10 day old Ds

    Today he had 12 bm ( about 1 each feeding) and 15 wet diapers

    Is this too much? Definitly an increase from before but he also did more feedings.

    Problem or am I just a worried mom

    Sounds normal. DS1 especially was a pooping machine when he was a newborn. Sounds like your LO is getting lot's of mommy's milk. That's a good thing. The pooping might slow down soon, although DS1 continued that way for awhile.

    Do you have extra milk? Consider donating!

    I agree. He's getting lots of milk which is a wonderful thing. Soon your body will realize you're feeding just one baby, not twins or triplets, and he will start growing like a weed during his growth spurts. The problem will resolve naturally My DD had and still has an impressive amoutn of output I say her digestion is from from Daddy's side

    Nursing can stimulate bowel movements. It's not unusual for a newborn to poop during or after every feeding. Are they large or just little squirts?

    That's exactly how my DD was at that age.

    my LO was the same way. the info they gave me in the hospital said to expect 1 poopy diaper in the first 24h...she had 9
    slowed down after the first week.
    now at 3 weeks she generally has 2 per day.
