Bowel Movements

My baby is a little over two months old and she's still on formula. What I'm wondering is if she should be pooping more than once a day? Cause she only poops once.

  • Thats fine. Most young babies do not poop everyday and some only go once a day. When my DD was that age we thought something was wrong with her because she didn't poop that often and our PED told us that its perfectly normal for a baby.

  • It's fine. Some poop 5 or 6 times a day, some poop once every 5 or 6 days... both are fine. As long as she doesn't have a hard time going, she's fine no matter how much she poops.

  • my baby goes 5 dyas without pooping thats because he is on prosobe cause he is allergic to everything else. once a day is good. when my son was borm he had abdominal distension. i wish my baby would poop at least once aday he scares me when he goes more than 2 days.
