DS was born last Thurs and hasn't pooped since Wed (6 days old). Now it's been 5 days with no poop (10 days old). I know poop frequency varies w babies but thought that happened when they are a little older like couple months? Is this something I should worry about? Baby is doing well and happy otherwise. No issues, discomfort, meds, allergies whatsoever except the poop thing.
Can I do anything about it? With DD I would give her some prune juice but not sure if I can do that with a newborn - probably not!
Some more info....We have been supplementing w formula since DS was 3 days old due to 15% weight loss. My milk came in on day 5 and breastfeeding is going well so we started to ramp down the formula for a couple days now. We will probably comepletely be off formula in several days. (please no flaming about the formula. same thing happened with DD and it didn't damage our breastfeeding relationship and felt it was needed due to a big weight loss)
