  • yep, normal!! my son goes about every other day, sometimes every 3 days. can hold it up to a week. if goes much longer than a week, call the dr. you might try some apple juice/ sauce/ foods that normally is how i get Cole to go. lay off the cereal some, sounds like it binds her up. more veggies, green beans, squash, sweet pot. ect not corn or white pot, not a veggie!!

  • Drs. say that is normal but if my kids went over a day with out going, they were constipated.

  • Yes,it's normal. My son only went once a week at that age. It's only an issue if you are formula feeding.

  • Its totally normal ONLY FOR BREASTFEED babies. Mine went 10 days before going. After that I freaked out and gave him a suppository. (I dont think i was supposed to do that) My pediatrician said to give him dark karo syrup about 1/4 TBL spoon a few times a day. This didn't work for us. Now he is on table food and goes everyday.
