  • Don't worry, my son did the same thing. I felt like the first month all I did was bf every 3o minutes or so and at 2 weeks it felt like more.. As for the pooping, bf babies can go days with out having one and still be normal. They can also have one daily or a small one with every diaper change.. still normal. As long as he is wetting enough diaper and not have hard stool when he does have a BM and not in any pain.. He is fine.
