    Default Poop question

    Hey ya'all, I'm new here so please excuse me if this question has been asked previously

    My son was having BMs pretty much after each feeding, but the last two days he has had only 1 BM a day. He is passing gas; in fact I'm surprised it's just gas. He will be 7 weeks old on Sunday. Is this normal?

    TIA

    Yep. By this age their poops can slow down. As long as they are soft, there is a good # of wets, and your baby has good wt gain, it's fine.

    Oh, and

    DH was VERY concerned about the lack of poo

    Let him change it when it finally comes.
