DD passed meconium normally then didn't poop for 5 days. She was nursing well enough making lots of good wet dipes I brought her in to the the LC who said she is getting enough milk so then went to the doc who stimulated her rectum. She then pooped a ton that day and the next day. Since then she has pooped a very small amount on avg about every 3 days and had one giant poop one day. We are in another long stretch without any poop so I did the rectal stimulation again but nothing happened.
I made an appt to take her back to the doc. Does it sound like it could be Hirschsprung disease or some thing else? I know older breastfeeding babies often go days between poops but not babies so young. My DS had a zillion poops a day when he was Dd's age.
Anyone had a similar experience? I'm trying not to freak out and obsess about the possibility of serious bowel problems... But I tend towards anxiety so not doing well.
