my second dd has only one stool per day...which she really strains to get out. all of her fussing happens when she is trying to poop. she has plenty of very wet diapers. my first dd pooped constantly- we never had a problem. is this normal? i have cut out dairy and chocolate for the time being to see if anything improves...any suggestions? i did try taking her temp twice to induce it, but even that didn't work.

If she is totally b___stfed I wouldn't worry about it. Are her stools soft and liquidey? They say that b___stfed babies are RARELY constipated. Its normal that she grunts and fussies as their whole digestive systtem is new and immature. Somebabies go after every feeding and some go once every 5-10 days. Unless her stools are hard or bloody I wouldn't worry. My dd (5 months) is totalyl b___stfed and she goes once a day or every other day- yet almost every feeding she grunts and makes noises like she is constipated.

This sounds normal to me. My daughter went through a phase where she was going every other day, this lasted a about a month. Now my daughter goes about 4-6 times per day.

That's normal for a BF baby. It's even normal for them to just have a bm every week.
