Exhausted baby

He just pooped after not pooping since Monday :( now he doesn't know if he wants to eat or sleep 😅 I could really tell he was getting ready to poop because he wouldn't nurse - actually he screamed when he tried. He's got a cleaned out system now.

How old is he? Has he been checked for lip and tongue ties?

Three months, no he hasn't. Normally he nurses life a champ and poops daily but he got more formula than I like these past couple weeks while I've been training for work, and that backed him up - I could really tell by the color change as he pooped. Now that I'm getting into a pumping routine and only working nights (which he sleeps most of), he shouldn't be getting any anymore.

These are the best pics I have in my phone that could show a tie if there is one

Getting rid of the formula should keep the pooping better.

He is adorable! I agree, formula can cause constipation.

He doesn't cry much so I couldn't get a good one of that. There's a couple other pics in this post though.

That looks like a pretty good lip tie. It goes almost down to the bottom of his gums.

Looks like he has a lip tie, which means he probably also has a posterior (deep) tongue tie. This can affect his ability to transfer milk, which will, along with formula use, lower your supply. Have a look at the section on ties in our resources sticky. There are links to pictures, articles, and a list of reputable providers by state who revise ties. Ties can cause speech, swallowing and food texture aversion issues, TMJ and migraines.

And babies his age can go several days without pooping. What did it look like when it finally happened?
