baby poops once a day...

As those of you who follow me know my baby Elizabeth had terrible painful gas. I give her gas drops almost every two hours. Well lately she's only been pooping once a day. And it is very painful. She Cry's bad when she's trying to poop. She is a breastfeed baby and I'm wondering if there's anything I can eat to help her poop.

    What consistency is her poop? Soft or firm?

      Pooping once a day is completely normal for a 2 month old. Babies often don't know how to coordinate their muscles at this age and they will push their muscles to poop but then clamp down on their anus. They will scream and cry because it hurts and they are pushing and can't get it out. A warm bath, belly massage and bicycling the legs all help to get them to relax their anus while trying to poop.

        Try massages and leg exercises on her and also if you cut out dairy from your diet and they said some babies are more sensitive to foods than others. I try not too eat onions, broccoli, or any other foods that are spicy or give gas until they can tolerate it once their bellies have adjusted.

        That sounds normal. Try a massage on her tummy and pump her legs.
