Poop question

Posted by on Jul. 14, 2013 at 5:27 AM

My 6wk old little man has gone from multiple poops a day to once a day to nothing from Wednesday night to yesterday evening then two good ones since. His poops have never been the typical yellow seedy I have heard of. Bit these last two seem really runny. Is that normal? He has really upped his feeding time these past few days so I know he is getting enough. Please help!!

Typcally around 6 weeks poop slows down.
Group record is over 20 days.

it's normal. like Melinda said this is when they slow down to every few days (not always-mine still pooped three times a day at least until six months so that's normal too lol). and it's also normal for them to be really loose or runny. a lot of doctors mistake this for diarrhea but it's not. diarrhea has to do with frequency... like fifteen dirty diapers in a day or something.

Perfectly normal. His systems are maturing and becoming more efficient, so he is absorbing more of what is in your milk. BTW, the record of poopless days in this group is something like 20, with a huge pooplosion following!

It isn't seedy at all though.

Is that why there are no 'seeds' at all?

Not something I'd be overly concerned about.
