Can anyone tell me, my 5 week old hasn't had a bowel movement since early am on Saturday, its now late Monday and should I be worried? He is eating normally, 3 oz every 3 hours, many wet diapers thru the day, and is passing a lot of gas. Any advice would be helpful!

My pediatrician told me bf babies go from pooping 10 times a day to poop once every 10 days. Not that it has to be that long, but to expect not to get one every day. I am still waiting for that to happen. My ds still goes about 6 times a day!

My ped said not to worry until they've gone 7 days w/out pooping (b___stfed babies). My older two were always every day poopers, even as they got to be older babies, but my youngest once went 5 day w/out pooping and I took him in to the ped. because I was too worried to wait any longer. They said give it a few more days... And guess what? On the way home he pooped and it exploded out of his diaper LOL.

I was told it was NORMAL for b___st fed babies to not poop everyday. My sone was only going every 3 days or so, nurse said it was okay....As long as he is not showing signs of distress about it.

oh by the way, a little prune juice 1oz and water will help!
