My 3.5 month old baby( only breast feeding) has not pooped for 5 days. Last week also this happened and doctor suggested us to use a glycerin suppositor . I am afraid of using it again. Please suggest a solution. Is this happening due to some food which I am eating.. please help..

Hi please don't use anything, I'm really sorry your doctor said this. Breastfeeding babies can be there without pooping for 10 days also. And your food got no connection to your baby not pooping please relax. Increase your breastfeeding session and you drink plenty of water minimum 4 liters of water per day and feed. Don't worry.
