bm fed babies go without pooping for 6-7 days... if still baby does not poop, visit ur paed., he will give suppository. just make sure pee count is more than 6-7 per day... ☺

give her gripe water and if u breastfeeding her then take ajwain with warm water and at her tummy area massage with little bit of musters oil warm it and then massage

Sonali Shivlani

A baby who is exclusively breastfeeding can go without passing poop for ten days. As long as baby is happy active and feeding well.  The poop whenever it happens should be easy to pass and not look like pellets.

hello mommies.. even my 2 months old son is having a straining problem.. his face turns red when he strains..but his poop is normal means not like pellets.. my pediatrician suggested I shall give him half a spoon of honey with two spoon of warm water.. I have did it for last two days but no help.. please suggest remedy

Sheeba Vijesh

pooja purandare normally honey is not advisable till one year...don't know why your paediatrician suggested it... it can cause botulism, so avoid. if his poop is normal then don't worry, some babies do grunt as this is all a very new feeling for them... just massage his tummy in clockwise motion around the navel, if you wish... only need to be concerned if he looks very uncomfortable and crying...

thanks sheeba vijesh.. he does get uncomfortable in intervals.. but he also plays as well.. so am confused wt to be done.. will do massage as per your suggestion and will stop honey..

Sheeba Vijesh

its probably due to gas.. give baby lots of tummy time when he is awake too... 😊

dhivya priya very normal... babies on breatmilk doesn't poop everyday or there is no fix rule as every baby is unique.... sometimes everyday and sometimes once is two days... it's normal...you can get your baby examined by pediatric and see if she has colic but late poop is OK....

dhivya priya

thanks everyone for ur replies...do i need to take ajwain with warm water

Rakhi Puri (beautyofmommying)

ajwain water is good for stomach...you can take it will be good for you....I had about 5 months as I used to like the taste
