Lily is 4 months now and still exclusively bf. Occasionally she would skip a day of poop but now she has skipped 4 days. This is her first long pooping strike. She is acting totally normal and not like she has a tummy ache or like anything hurts. She still farts all the time, so I guess her little butt still works.

I know its pretty rare for breasfed babies to get constipated, so that's probably not it. (We don't do the ped thing, so asking a doc isn't really an option.) I just need some reassurance that this is normal. It is, isn't it?

DD pooped fairly regularly for a week or two then went nearly TWO WEEKS, then a week to 10 days or so for a while, then eventually settled into once or twice a week. Now that she is finally eating the occasional solids it can be 4 times a day! Ick, I prefered the once a week... I am sure there is nothing to worry about :-)

I've even known some moms/babes who went a week like clockwork! When it comes, boy does it come! Dd#2 had one like that last week, it was so bad the diaper and the whole back of her onsie were totally full!! ICKY.

Mine was once a week on sunday at that age. Ditto the expect an eruption on the day it happens! She farted too sometimes, but never seemed uncomfortable except on Poop Day. It was darker, thicker, smellier, and more.

It's perfectly normal. They're not holding they're just using the BM pretty efficiently so therel snot much waste. Now DD eats a lot of silds she poops once a day. That once a week was nice on the laundry. I always pity the babes whose moms think something is wrong and start using juice, suppositories, etc. to "make" them go!
