I am sure this question been asked somewhere but can't find it. How long have your 2-3 month go without pooping.
My baby will be making 3 months on the 25th of this month. He has not poop from since Jan. 12th (that's like 10 days). He doesn't seem to be in any pain, his stomack is soft, he acts normal as before (smiling, baby talking and looking to put everything that crosses his face in his month ). The longest he have every gone without pooping is 1 week - once, then 5 days - once, now it's 10! He just started missing days when he turned 2 months. Any Advise? Comments?

I have heard a great, experienced LLL leader say 21 days is still normal. I know a couple of moms who's babies pooped once a week. It was always a blowout but that was the baby's schedule!

Has your baby gone a few to several days before? Has your diet changed at all?

You could call the pediatrician for more info but since you are a breastfeeding mama you might get better info from a LLL leader.

My ped told me that up to 10 days was normal but to call after that.

My babies have gone up to two weeks at that age.

Jam 7, Peanut Butter 5, and Bread 2.

My oldest son would go 10-12 days.

IT turns out it was because he was sensitive to dairy protiens that carried through my milk and his gut was trying to process that protien for that long.

It's lonely being the only XX in a house of XYs.

I've never heard this before. Could you post some more info and/or links?

I don't have any online links. I learned about it in my biology class over the summer. It had to do with enzymes present or not and if you are missing an enzyme other enzymes try to break the protien down, but without the proper enzyme the food just sits in the gut until the acid present can break the nutrient down.

Some babies can go 30 days & be fine- I'd personally call the pedi after 10 (our longest was 8 days)

Try Dr Sears, Kellymom, and LLL for links about dairy intolerances. Or just search around here and BF challenges, we have a ton of posts about it.

He finally went today. I just saw a diaper with some poop. Not sure how much he did, my husband(who is watching a movie with headphones on now) was with him(who is sleeping on top of daddy) while I went in to work briefly-so I haven't asked any questions.

So I finally asked my husband did he poop a lot. He just looked at me and said "I am still terrified" . (He had never been with him alone when he had a big blow out). My Husband said he was running up and down the place like a crazy chicken not knowing what to do. I was wondering why the bathroom trash pan was in the living room(and we have a small trash pan there), a bowl with water and washcloth was on the ground, and I saw 2 diapers(we use cloth) that was soiled! He said he didn't know what else to do when one diaper got full he grabbed a next diaper with a linear on top (we had a linear in the first one also) so he could finish in that one. Last time my baby did a blow out my husband was washing the diapers he said he wasn't touching that diaper - we ended up throwing it away.
