  • Babies can go a few days without pooping, especially if they're breastfed, but you may want to stop the cereal if she's under 6 months

  • she is breastfed, her pediatrician gave me the ok to give her solids now because she is already crawling and can sit up on her own and is doing so much now. i give it to her once a day she actually just pooped too lol. so thank you ladies for your advice!!! I suppose i may have been just jumping to conclusions lol

  • It is normal for a breastfed baby to go up to 10 days without pooping. Breast milk is easily absorbed and has very little waste. As long as when she does go she doesn't strain or have pellets she is okay. Also, I would recommend stopping the cereal. She doesn't need it and it can actually interfere with the absorption of your breast milk and can cause intestinal upset.
