Werz the poop?????

I have a 2 month old little boy who hasn't pooped in nearly 5 days. I breastfeed most of the time and sometimes use formula. We just switched from Similac to Enfamil, but aside from the occasional grunting and groaning to pass gas and/or trying to poop, he seems just fine. Does anyone else have any experience with the hopefully normality of no poops???

  • When my son was 4 months old he went 17 days without poohing..

    I never gave formula though I do not know what that would do.

  • 6 wk baby girl, breastfeeding but just started adding half of formula milk mixed with brstmilk. She seems to be very satisfied and happy with this but she toots alot and hasnt pooped for three days. My mom use to add just a LITTLE Karo syrup to the milk-just for a short time -it always helped. We'll see!

  • It worked! She finally pooped. Used the clear, not dark due to ingredients in dark, Karo syrup. Put 1/4 t. in 4 oz. milk (2 enfamil isomil & 2 Brst milk) two separate times the first day. The second day we just dipped baby finger 3 times and let her suck off the clear syrup, this isnt much syrup but that night she pooped. Won't continue the syrup since she has began her bowel movement. But I would do it again if she gets constipated.
