DD hasn't pooped for 4.5 days. She's gone 2 days before but never this long. 2 weeks ago I got her off bottles and have been nursing and having her weight checked by LC. She's only gained 6oz in the last 11 days due to her bad latch which we're working on. I've heard babies can go for a week w/o a poop but I'm concerned. DH is wanting to go back to the Peds. I've developed a total lack of respect for the entire hospital.... And I'm worried they'll just get overinvolved and push supplementation which they did at the start and which has got us into this prob in the first place. Should I be concerned yet? When should I get concerned? Anyone got any simple ways to encourage a poop? Do you think the lack of poop is simply due to less intake? Would you be concerned about her weight gain while working on the latch prob? She's peeing enough - about 8 really wet diapers per day and she seems happy, hasn't been crying more than usual.
