Oh my goodness Im going to start crying if I can not figure out what my sons problem is. He went to his grandmas for the first time on friday. Since I have picked him up he has been extreamly fussy and clingy. He is sleeping alot and always wants to be held.  He isnt normally like this. Not to mention he hasnt had a BM since like wensday and I calle dthe hospital they told me that he could go 7 days with out one. I have NEVER heard that that was ok. 


Any advice?

Is it ok for a 2 month old to go for 7 days with out a BM?

Jun. 2, 2008 at 9:36 PM I had the problem with my son too early on, prob for the first few months. They told me it was normal too. I used an enima once or twice but couldn't keep doing that. Later on found out he had low tone and that is probably why he didn't poop for so long. It did work itself out though. Hang in there.
