    Default Constipation or??

    Bit of background info Baby is 11 weeks when he was born he took 24 hours to pass meconium and since then till about 7-8 weeks he would poo every 5 days but it was getting less each time and harder to pass. the last 3 weeks he hasnt done anything and today has been screaming in pain not feeding much and very hard tummy. I gave a suppository and he passed a very small very hard amount with alot of muccus. Im starting to get really worried as I dont think this is normal.

    Formula or breastmilk? If you're really worried contact your gp. Trust your mothers instinct

    He hasn't done a poo for three weeks? If so, I'd go to the GP asap.

    Breastfed babies can go up to 10-14 days without a poo and be considered normal... 3 weeks is a bit long. I'd be taking him to the GP, just to be checked. Especially if his tummy is hard.... That out indicate he is constipated.

    It is normal for breastfed babes to go for several days between poos. My three regularly went anywhere from 5-10 days but they were only a bit fussy the day before and day of the pooplosion.

    Three weeks seems like a long time. How often is bub feeding? Is he having lots of wet nappies a day?
