My 16 days old son is on breastmilk and takes once or twice formula milk. Approx 30ml each serving. But from past 2-3 days he is pooping a lot. (6-8 times) Her bar thodi thodi potty kerta hai ...is this normal?

Yes, absolutely normal......bt be careful about loose motion, then plz consult with ur pediatrician

How do u distinguish between loose motions n normal poo?

The baby is getting a custom to the outside world so kindly feed him exclusively on your breast feed and then slowly gradually have the formula milk given also potty 6-8 is very normal

Reshma I try to feed him my milk and he comfortably sleeps in my lap after each feed but the moment I put him down he gets up.

Reeti that's how babies are first 6 weeks is difficult but trust me things will get better and it's always better to feed your breast milk. If you are comfortable in lying down position you can feed like that, burping is not required if he shows no sign of discomfort. You can gently pat his back..

Its normal my baby also poop many times for around 2 weeks..hv light meal, eat slow,chew ur meal properly and take ur meal on time..
why u feed him formula milk..?

Chandrama... He keeps crying after having my feed and I don’t know if my milk is sufficient and filling !! Yesterday he slept at 5 am after taking top feed ... it could be bcoz he slept till late in the evening and was not sleepy or may be he was hungry after having my feed ...don’t know actually.... being first time mom after thing is sooo new 😊

Babies cry when put down because they feel insecure and want u to hold him thats why he sleeps on ur lap but cry when put down..
It doesn't mean baby not getting enough milk..
Baby is so small he need frequent feeding as his tummy full and empty very soon..
Try swaddling..it provide the womb like feeling

My baby also do the same specially in night... some night he sleeps some nights he want me to hold him all the time.. dont worry things will change soon as baby's sleep cycle is developing..

Yes i am swaddling him it helps!! Thank u so much for clarifying my doubt I was really worried about my supply!!

😊 enjoy ur motherhood..
I m also new mom
