    Default Sleep pooing...

    My dd is now 6weeks old and we changed her formula a week ago which has fixed all her issues so we are happy with it except she's started pooping heaps. They are all normal as such just often like yesterday she did 5 they were all little but the thing is she keeps pooping in her sleep waking herself up.
    She's at the age now where she's wanting to sleep longer overnight but just now she was whinging I went in and she was still asleep but I could smell it so changed her. I offered her a bottle which she only took 60ml so obviously she wasn't stirring because of hunger it was the poops fault.
    I never had this with my older child so is this normal is there anything I can do or it's just a matter of her growing out of it?

    I'm no expert but 6 weeks is pretty little to be sleeping any length of time through the night?

    as for waking herself up due to pooping, perhaps the new formula is giving her gas/wind which is waking her up?

    why did you change from the old formula?

    Not necessarily. If bub is peeing and pooing heaps and putting on weight there's no problem with sleeping more than 4 hours at each stretch.

    no I agree, I meant expecting them to. I interpreted the OP's question as meaning they should be sleeping longer. never mind, I think I misunderstood.

    My youngest two babies were sleep poopers. Especially my DS. He's almost 2 and still does it sometimes. The paediatrician said its just because when they are asleep they relax and it comes out. Which is not a bad thing just annoying :-)

    We changed her formula as her previous one wasn't sitting well with her she's had lots of wind issues partly from a poor latch due to tongue and lip ties which we had lasered almost 2weeks ago. She also started spewing up mucusy milk and had extremely watery diaorrhea along with being generally unsettled, angry and not sleeping. She's now on lactose free as all her symptoms seemed to match it and my first had and still does have issues with lactose. She's instantly settled better on it minus the non stop pooing.
    I wasn't expecting her to sleep longer (although it would be nice) I meant as in at 4am when she was stirring and whinging in her sleep it wasn't because she was hungry or needing comfort it was simply because she pooped in her sleep and if she hadn't done that she would of kept sleeping I assume.
    Gosh don't tell me that julbe!! Lol I hope she goes back to one or two decent ones a day instead of these non stop tiny sharts. Ha

    Haha I'm sorry. It's not often now. If he has too much dairy it happens mostly.
