    Default Baby poop

    How often should my 3 month old be pooping? She's FF and has been drinking Aptimal Gold.

    My DD was fully fed Aptimal Gold and she was going multiple times a day at that age. Never a really hard poo, never any straining or anything (she had previously been on NAN HA and was constipated and upset so we changed to Aptimal Gold early on).

    When my DD was solely on Aptimil gold she went every day or every second day (usually it was once per day, around lunch time She skipped the odd day here or there ).

    I was always told a FF baby should poo once a day and BF babies could go up to 10 days without pooing.
    Does your bub seem in pain? Have you tried moving her legs in a circular motion? This sometimes helps getting the bowels moving.

    She does seem to be in pain. I gave her belly a little massage yesterday and did the leg thing this morning. I hope she poops today. I've never been so desperate to see poo!

    4 days is a bit long .. A little prune juice would help ( we did this with my son .. At same age )

    Yes like mabelline said a little prune juice or the old fashioned brown sugar in warm water (not sure if people still do this)
