1 month baby can go without poop for 6-7 days... its normal.. check if baby is colic..

Priyanka Baldewa

how to know abt colic???

Sonali Shivlani

If baby is exclusively breast fed then it is normal to not pass stools for about ten days. Constipation does not mean no stools it means passing hard pellet like stools. If your baby is not passing hard stools then that is not constipation. Colic refers to intestine cramps or sometimes also known as gas pains - it will happen at given times of the day only and the rest of the day the baby is comfortable. Don't try home remedies. It's best to consult your doctor for colic medications of the problem is severe. The good news is that even though it is painful now there are no long term side effects of colic.

shez passing lot of fart....sometyms cryn as havn pain while passig fart...

Akansha Sharma

make your baby burp after each and every feed..holding your baby closed to your chest in upright position and patting in upward to downward position..
Since your baby is one month I am assuming baby is exclusively breast fed
.so baby can go without pooping for 8-10 days..so don't worry about that
