Ok, DD2 has been an infrequent pooper from the start. She pooped 4 times her first day, 2 times her second and then it was about 1 big poop a day after that. Sometimes it would go to every other day. About 3 weeks ago (5 weeks old) she started going multiple days without pooping. She even went 3 days in her 6th week. Today was 7 days without pooping, so I used the thermometer method to stimulate things and she pooped right away, like it was sitting there waiting to come out. It was super thick and goopy, like meconium, except it was the normal yellow breastmilk poop color. IT WAS BIG.... lots and lots came out.
So, seems wierd to me. She is just 2 months now. What do you all think?
(I removed dairy and gluten over 2 weeks ago... her eczema has cleared up, but poop is still an issue).
...is it normal for her still to be going several times a day at 6 weeks? They are all big juicy bright yellow poos... often making a big mess (once she squirted all over my jeans TWICE in one diaper change... the day I was so proud of fitting into said jeans!)
