So my little girl is 9 weeks old and is breasfed. She only poops every few days...and when she does it's a blow out. Anyone else have a baby like this? Is it normal???

normal with breasfed babies, in my experience. my dd's only got worse until I finally started her on cereal around 5 mths. This made it "thicker' and not so explosive. good luck

My ds was b___stfed and he went after every feeding. All babies are different I guess!

YES - my son used to poop all the time, but now it is every few days and when he does it is Ma__sive!!! I was worried too. It seems like he strains but I read that is normal.

Jodie, same here! Sienna has ma__sive explosions every other day!

My b___stfed DD has explosive poop every single time.. and she goes at least 3 times a day! I've only not heard her poop once in her 2 months so far - it is loud and forceful.. and can be messy!

Consider yourself lucky!! My dd would poop like 4 times per day at that age and we'd go through a lot of outfits!!! They were all b__wouts it seemed!! Sounds normal to me though! Our pediatrician kept warning us that she may go a few days between poops and she just never did.

My b___stfed baby was going as long as 6 - 10 days between bowel movements. At 10 I had her in emergency and she exploded there ;-) I started giving a suppository after day 6 as I just was not happy with him going that long. Now that he is on solids he goes daily.

It's normal for bf babies, and nothing to worry about. Will chang once on solids.

LOLOL.. c_baer19.. my lo is the same way.. loud and forceful.. She'll be sitting in DH lap and all of a sudden "there she b__ws".. DH looks so stunned hoping that that diaper will hold... I cringe just hearing it cause I know whats in there waiting for me, and if I'm lucky I can get DH to help double-team it.. My lo is 4 months old and is strictly b___stfeed. She won't even take water out of a bottle. I've tried, just to hold her over when we're out, and nope not happening..Anyways, she has gone about 3 days before having a BM. And the color, I swear it stains her little bottom an orangey tint. But, Doc says that it's all normal for BF babies...

Our pedi said same thing about ds. He was pooping exactly every 7 days and almost at the same time haha!!! Now it's btwn 4-6days (various times;) I read that b'fed bb's have less poop b/c they use so much of what's in the milk there is less waste. Wonder if that is true? We're saving tons on wipes and diapers:-)
