how many poopy diapers should my 1 week old have a day?

She is both formula and breast fed (similac advance) and she hasn't pooped yet today and she is ALWAYS fussy at night. She doesnt cry but it looks like she is trying to poop and she doesn't. When she does poop its a normal consistency, so I know she isnt constipated. I usually get 2-3 poopy diapers a day, but I want more!!

  • DIRTY DIAPERS: Depends on your child.
    Number ranges from many per day to one every 7 – 10+ days. After 4 - 6 weeks, some babies switch to an infrequent stooling pattern. This is normal as long as baby is gaining well, and stools are soft and profuse if several days have passed. More on infant stooling.

  • your baby may be fussy cuz she may have gas, does her bottle vent out the air, I know my baby had a big problem when that when he was first born then I changed his bottle and he slept all through the night.
