Huma Usmani

my lo had d same problem. though I read alot bout breastfed baby poo...n most of the sites said it's normal for a bf baby to poop once in 7 days or 7 times in a day.... but I was never satisfied with this and. my paed recommend to use a rectal thermometer or a clean earbud with Vaseline to mk baby poop. if she did not poop for 3 or 4 days I use to use it n that wud relieve her if her discomfort. after a couple of months her poop cycle improved. I never used suppositories.... massage with warm oil exercise the legs n it's winters so u cn pour warm water on the tummy or use a hot towel.....

If the baby is exclusively breast fed then it is normal to not pass stools for seven to ten days at a stretch. Breast milk is completely digestible and there may be no waste matter to pass. It is recommended to allow stools to pass naturally as artificial methods can cause the bowels to always need support in passing motions.
