1week old not pooping as much
Hello mommas. So I am breastfeeding my baby girl only, no bottles. The first 5 days of her life she was pooping great! Even after she passed the maconium. But two days ago I have noticed she is only pooping once or twice a day... Sometimes she is acting like she is pushing( I think) but there is nothing in her diaper.. She has been peeing a lot tho.. Do you think I should be worried about?
One day without a bowel movement is usually no cause for concern. As long as your baby is feeding well and wetting her diaper five or six times a day, then she's most likely getting enough to eat. If she starts to become uncomfortable or has a persistently swollen abdomen, then she may need some help with pooping, and you should speak to your pediatrician about how to facilitate this.
