don't worry even I had a same problem with my baby ..
doctor said till the age of 2 it's normal ...
because they don't have enough capacity to store new feed ...
so they poo previous n store new thing ..
don't worry till the age of 2

Dr. Riddhi Kataria

Hi. How many feeds happen in 24 hours? How many times does your baby pass urine? What is the current or latest checked weight of the baby and Birth weight?

alifya hussain

12 or more feed. passes urine many times
birth weight 3.1
current 6.2

Dr. Riddhi Kataria

According to the feeding routine shared, baby is gaining weight properly. So nothing to worry if baby is pooping after every feed. If the poop has a fowl smell or looks green or is watery for more than 3 days then consult your paediatrician.
Also check that baby is getting both the hind milk and foremilk in every feed. If baby gets only water part of the milk, baby will have a slower weight gain.

Wat is hind nd foremilk?

Dr. Riddhi Kataria

Breast milk has two parts - hind milk which contains the fat and other nutrients and foremilk has water. During a feed the milk that flows in the first 10-15 mins, it's very watery following which the thick milk flows. So every feed should last atleast for 15-45 mins. As the baby grows the baby learns the suck and mouth power also improves so feeding time per breast reduces but the content remains the same.

he takes d feed only for 2-5mins nd at tyms its 7-10mins nt mre than that

Dr. Riddhi Kataria

Distraction makes them wander around while feeding. Try getting him back to the breast. Try for the next few feeds n update me. It's always best to talk in person so we can discuss minute details. You can call me anytime for the same

alifya hussain

he is 4m so feed shud last for how mny mins

Dr. Riddhi Kataria

There is no manual or standard to the mins. But its expected to be 15-20 mins so you have to keep trying to get back the baby on the breast. If the baby doesn't suck, then he is full. Its demand feeding so baby will give you the sign.
Don't worry. Take time to know your baby. Every baby is unique and they will set their own standards
