  • You can offer him prune juice, start with 1 oz he should poop shortly after that. If he doesnt you can always give it to him 2 times a day. Good luck!

  • if u r only nursing ur baby,, its ok to not have as many bowel movements. sometimes for a whole week, my ped. said its cause they r getting only nutrients and there is nothing to waste...so...not as much poop as formula babies.
