Q:

hi moms my baby is 3months old as my milk is not sufficient iam giving both bm and fm but baby not pooping reguarly so do needful



Roopashree Siddireddy

It's quite normal. It takes time for baby to set cycle. Fees BM as much as possible. More you feed..more will be produced. At times it will be till 1 week they don't do. and sometimes they do 3-4 times in a day.

thank you
but my mom place tamarid stick at motion point for pooping it said dont do but she didnt hear my words

Roopashree Siddireddy

oh my god... no no.. Earlier ppl use to use crude and rude methods. I know may others ( but will not mention here..as someone else may try, which is not correct). If placed...remove immediately. and don't allow to place anything in anus. The muscle around shouldn't get loose. Tell them that your doctor have said not to do..

Nandhini Rajendran

is there any issue if not pooping regulary

Roopashree Siddireddy

constipation is common among babies. No problem. It's common..slowly baby will be fine.

hi nandhini, are you from kerala?

Sheeba Vijesh

nandhini, babies can go without pooping for 6-7 days during the breastfeeding time. its normal. once solids start, pooping will get more consistent. their digestive system is still developing. just look for pee 6-7 in a day... no need to force baby to poop.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello nandhini...
as other moms said it is common tht babies have irregular poops...plz dont worry..sometimes it may be constipation n sometyms more number of poops / day... plz convince ur mom not to put stick n all in rectal part... it ll hurt ur baby.. he is still small ryt..
