hi nithya.. its absoultely normal for babies to not pass stool even for a week. its not mandotory to pass stool daily. main imp is pee count which is normal as u hv mentioned and no issues if baby is active

Nithya Chellathurai

is this the same for formula feed also?? bcoz per day he is taking 200 ml of top feed??

manvi bhandari

yes nithya. its normal

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hello...
If the baby is active and healthy then poo is not an issue... as u said pee count is normal... usually babies have irregular poo.. it may be 6-7times a day or once in 4-7days also... So until baby is active no need to worry... just feed regularly...
thanx fa tag asha chaudhry
