ok, my baby is 3 weeks old today and has only pooped 2 times since he was a week old. he is breastfed. for the first week, he pooped every time he ate and now he doesnt ever poop! (like i said, only twice in the last 2 weeks) anyways, i have been giving him a ounce of prune juice to 3 ounces of water and still no poop.. constipation and GI issues run heavily in my side of the family and was wondering if this is something that i should be worried about?? does he need to see a dr or is it normal to not poop that often? please help.. im gonna make him a drs appt tomorrow because he has been very fussy because his belly is hurting him and he has been really gassy the past few days.
thank you guys for all the responces... i went to the drs today and she noticed his belly was destended a bit and told me to do suppositorys and prune juice.. she made a appointment with a gastrointeroligist for further testing.. she is concerned because of the hirshsprung and other GI problems that run in my family.. i will keep you guys updated.. thanks!Answer Question
