Q:

my hasn't poop since yesterday and farts a lot and struggling to do poop. yesterday she hasn't sleep as well cried whole night please what i have do and she's on breastfeed but this is upsetting my baby.

that happens dear... bf babies go without poop for 7-8 days..... it is natural to fart at this time and it will also get smelly... flex your baby's legs at knee to chest gently, rub her tummy around the navel in clockwise gentle motions, give tummy time... ts the gas casing discomfort to your little one... you can also dissolve a pinch of hing in warm water and apply this around baby's navel...

his poop has been tight and for this some children capsules are available in chemist shop which u can put in babies a*s. the same problem my son also faced and poop with blood. so dr. advised me this. his poop   will be slippery and comeout easily after 10 15 minutes. and for gas some hing ( asefoetida) in warm water. hing should melt and be pulpy. take hing in cotton and apply around the naval and then put that cotton on the naval ( ensure it should not be hot only warm). it will relieve his gas.   you can also give message on routine basis around the naval in clockwise position.

reply when ur baby relief

babita, a few days without poop is alright, no need to immediately keep suppository... suppository is to be used only if baby does not poop for more than 7-8 days. suppositories are the last option, better consult a paed. before giving...

Babita Rawat

agreed but it depends on how  uncomfortable he is

Sheeba Vijesh

babita, if we tell about such medicines to new moms, everytime the baby does not poop for 2 days( which is often the case in breastfed babies) , the mother will resort to suppository. that is to be prescribed by paed. otherwise, many health conditions which can cause constipation as a symptom may go unnoticed... if you feel i am wrong, i beg your pardon...

but of course we are here to help each other.. and this is a beautiful platform to show our sisterly love... i was not arguing, just pointing out a small fact... even i sometimes give out out-of-place advises in my eagerness to help a fellow mommy... it may be someone else who points out the downfall of that... after all, we are like one big family here, na..

Babita Rawat
