  • Jesse does that still and he 1... Give it a couple of days and if it doesnt get better call your doc. but if she is feeling bad.. Maybe go ahead and call... Better to be safe than upset...

  • Is she crying and in pain? Or is she just relieved? She is still young and is still figuring out what muscles to use, call the doc just in case.

  • That is normal for a BF baby, some can go up to week without pooing and other go several times a day, as long as she is not in pain and the stool is not hard, or hard to pass; dont worry to much...if you need to feel better about this and not worry call her ped and as him/her or leave a message with the nurse.
