Hey internet, it’s me, the girl who can’t seem to find time to post. It’s been crazy around here lately. But I have a favor to ask, if anyone is actually reading this. I need your help. It’s about poop, or lack thereof.
Walter is a breastfed baby. Although, I do supplement. He probably receives 80% breastmilk, 20% formula, some weeks a lot less formula depending on how much I’m away from him.
Anyway, he poops every 5-7 days. And the days leading up to pooping are tough on him. He complains, fusses, he just seems unhappy. And I’m not sure how I can help, IF I can help.
Also: this is normal, right?
When Em was a baby it seemed as though he never stopped pooping. Elliot pooped regularly as well–maybe every three days? But Walter, he’s different, granted he also breastfeeds more often than the other two. (Em was mostly a formula-fed baby.)
Anyway, if you have any insight, that would be great. We are going on day 6 right now and he’s not very happy. So, I’m just looking for a little comfort and then maybe I can give him some.
