  • Yes. Breastmilk (and formula, but to a slightly lesser extent) are extremely efficient foods. Your baby is just not producing much waste. Don't worry. =)

  • that is very normal. some babies go once a day, my 2 month old goes every other day, and some only go once a week and all are normal

  • Yes. Some babies go poop multiple times a day, others every other day, some every three days. It's all about how the baby's body works. As long as they are passing regular bowel movements, are not straining or having any bowel movement issues, and are eating normally.

  • YES! my daughter is the same way ... 10 weeks :) I talked to the doctor about it at her 2 month appointment and she said that was fine. If its breast milk it should still be seedy and if its formula its thie weird brownish green stuff lol

  • It's fine, as long as the stool is not dry, hard or pellet like.
