Q:

my baby is 3 week old. she is not at all outing on her weight. and cries a lot while passing stool. please suggest what shod I do



Subha

Did you checked the stool count? If it's much less than the usual count then it might be constipation. Not sure whether 3weeks old baby could be constipated

Sonali Shivlani

Constipation means that the baby is passing hard round pellet like stools. If stools are passed soft then that is not constipation. Baby is probably just reacting to a different feeling. Weight gain should not be a little more than the birth weight. All babies loose some weight in the first few days of life which is normal but by day fifteen they regain this and start gaining. Discuss this with your baby's doctor if you feel weight is a concern.
