Pooping Problems

My LO has not had a pooping diaper for about 3 or 4 days. She is a breast feed baby. But she has been having really bad gas, like when she farts it's smells really bad. Anyone know what could be happening?

  • COMPLTETLY NORMAL FOR BREASTFED BABIES TO HAVE BAD GAS AND NOT POOP FOR UP TO 5 DAYS. mY OLDEST POOPED EVERYTIME I FED HER, MY NEW LO ONLY POOPS EVERY 4-5 DAYS. MY PED SAID IT'S FINE.

  • My guy goes a week sometimes without pooping. He gets uncomfortable at that point and I give a suppository. I've asked the doctor about it a couple times and they say it's normal.

  • it's cool. she can not poop but not be constipated. as long as the not pooping or gas don't hurt her, all is well. my baby has smelly farts too & she's all booby. lol.
