he must get it from his father... baby (6wks) is full of crap.

no really, the last four days he's had only 2 poopy diapers. he has a wet diaper every 45 minutes or so. but i can't get him to poop. does anyone know of anything safe enough for a baby this little? the last time he pooped was 8am yesterday. he didn't poop sunday and he pooped saturday morning about 10am.

  • depends on if he is breast fed or bottle fed...bottle fed babies poop less because breast milk is a natural laxative..

  • He's fine. They don't have to poop every day. If he acts as though he's in pain or goes more than about 4 days, give the doctor a call...
