Hi all, my 5 week old has gone almost 4 days without pooping! I'm getting worried, although our pediatrician warned us when he was 2 weeks old that sometimes babies who are exclusively breastfed will go for 3-5 day stretches withno poop. He still feeds well and seems hungry just as often as before (about every 2 hours during the day). He pees a lot and he passes gas. My husband saw a squirt of poo in his diaper last night, but nothing more than that. We haven't noticed any changes in his mood or other habits, except for the fact that his nighttime sleep stretches are lengthening (tonight he slept 6 hours straight, but then I woke him to feed). Have any of you experienced this?
