    It's completely normal. All 3 of my bf babies liked to hold onto things for a week or two. The record was 3 weeks. All of which the MCHN assured me is completely normal. Only thing I ever did about was pray I was at home when it finally arrived!

    yup normal for bf babies. My DS when 15 days once. hving said that though, he was not at all uncomfortable. Maybe check with the health nurse just to be sure.

    I don't know where you're getting your info from but it is absolutely normal for exclusively breastfed babes to poo anywhere from several times a day to once every 7-10 days.

    My breastfed baby always pooped every day, BUT I agree with others and have heard the 'normal' range for breastfed bubs is much longer between #2s.
    Although in the next few days I'd be seeking advice, especially if she seems in pain from it.

    How about infacol or a brauers natural product to assist . Pharmacy should be helpful !

    My son would only go every 2 weeks when he was exclusively bf.. Now that he is on solids he goes everyday

    As long as bubs have plenty of wet nappies there shouldn't be anything to worry about

    We've got this at the moment too. She is also 11 weeks old. She seems very uncomfortable though. She did one yesterday but it wasn't huge, certainly not as big as I thought it should be after that long. She is just screaming most of the time she is awake.
