  • Breast milk is a natural laxative, so that doesn't sound entirely unreasonable to me. I found to be a great resource for my breastfeeding concerns.

  • Yeah totally normal. It will slow down around 1 month. My 4 month old breastfed baby now poops once a day, sometimes only every other day.

  • My daughter is breastfed and when she was a newborn almost every diaper change was a poopy diaper. Around 4 weeks or so it became a once a day thing, then around 2 months her poops were completely random. Sometimes she'd go every day, sometimes every other day, sometimes she would go 4 days without pooping. Now we've started solids and it's changing yet again. Fun times! LOL.

  • She pooped EVERY time she ate for a couple months! It slows down eventually, I promise. At seven months it is down to once every day or two. She is still exclusively breastfed (no solids).
