Does anyone have any experience with a breastfed baby pooping very infrequently? My DS will be 2 weeks old tomorrow. He had a meconium poop at birth and then a few small ones soon after. He then didn't poop for about a week, and that was mostly meconium too. Our pediatrician was not too concerned, saying some babies (even breastfed ones) only poop once a week. She suggested glycerin suppositories if he appeared to be uncomfortable. She also thought that maybe since I was taking percocet for pain (episiotomy :() he was constipated from that.
At about 9 days old he got really fussy and looked like he was trying to go. We gave him a few minutes and then tried the glycerin suppository. Within about a minute of trying to put it in (he kept pushing it out) he had an enormous breastmilk like poo (very thin). But now we are day 13 and have had no poop again.
I am trying not to be crazy worried about him, he certainly is comfortable, able to pass gas and with a soft tummy. He has plenty of wet diapers and nurses every 2.5-3 hours for 15 minutes each side. I just need some reassurance that he is okay.
