Baby not pooping
So baby girl is 2 weeks old and she’s mix feeding - breast and formula for a top up. At first she was pooing at least 3 times or more, then it went down to max twice a day. Now for the past 2 days she hasn’t gone once but she’s still farting. I’ve told the midwife and she said with breastfeeding that can be normal but I can tell it’s really left my LO distressed and maybe in pain so now I don’t know what to do. Any help?
Hi Ruby sounds like your baby’s system is adjusting to the change to the milk. As long as she’s having wet nappies she’s fine ensure she’s hydrated and she will be fine. My baby did this for a while, I had to give him more breast milk and ensure he had at least a bottle each day of formula on top of feeding him on demand as my breast milk just was not filling him enough. Since I have he goes daily now.
