DD#2 is 6 months old and for the last month she has been pooping every 2-3 days.  I know it is normal for EBF babes to sometimes go for several days without pooping daily, but I am a bit concerned because this has became her routine.  I started consuming yogurt (I have always consumed butter) about the same time she stopped having daily poops.  I am wondering if she is reacting to the dairy in my diet?

nope it is totally normal to skip days regularly. If she was having a reaction she would go more often and it would be green and mucousy (though sometimes normal bm poop is green so idk if that is even a sign)

I wouldn't be concerned if she is comfortable and isn't getting constipated (hard, pellet-like poops).


Her having a change in pooping routine isn't a bad thing.
