If your child is having trouble breathing you need to go and see a doctor. Really, in first aid the first thing you check is the airway for a very good reason. Not to mention feeling like you can't breathe is just horrible. It could be asthma, it could just be normal whooping cough, but they could do something as simple as steroids for a few days to reduce the inflammation and make your baby so much more comfortable.
It is normal for an exclusively breastfed baby to space out their poos around six weeks. They can go for up to two weeks between poos. It is very unusual for a breastfed baby to be constipated. If when she goes it is hard and pebbly (indicating constipation) you need to have her seen by the doctor, because it's very very abnormal.

No, crib bumpers can cause suffocation if a baby rolls up to it and cannot breathe. That is not SIDS. That is suffocation.

Like they are saying "We're watching you because we don't trust you"...very unwelcoming IMO. It's the main reason that I avoid that store like the plague!! I don't understand how they can continue to trade. I shopped there...

In our normal life: disposable wipes for bottoms, and hands when eating out of the house, antibacterial for after play centers with no handwashing facilities. Sometimes we have individually packaged freeze dried fruit for snack while we're out. When travelling, flying, staying in hotels: disposable nappies, disposable change mat (I still have four in the pack and I'm on my second shild - I'll throw it away if it gets poo on it), disposable place mat for eating, food in...
Hugs here, too. Have you tried a pacifier? Could she be getting overtired? I know when getting mine to sleep was really hard I'd put it off and they'd get overtired and it would make it even harder.
I try and include some of each food group and each colour at each meal. So if the finger food is carrots the mush might be zucchini and rice, or finger food is broccoli and bread and mush is pear and cottage cheese.
Mostly I would, unless it's a daytime nap and I know it's going to be short anyway. Poo burns really quickly, I wouldn't want them to be sitting in it for two hours. And if it were my kids they wouldn't sleep long with a poo anyway.
