|How often should baby poop? What should their poop look like? How will you know if baby is constipated? Here is a little guide to help you determine if baby's poop is normal:
Depending on your baby, what’s considered normal may range from one bowel movement every several days to several poops every day. Generally, breastfed babies poop more than formula-fed ones.
Infants who are breast- fed tend to have somewhat watery bowel movements that are soft or even runny. Formula-fed babies pass slightly more firm stools that are similar in consistency to peanut butter.
For breastfed babies, a mustardy yellow with little whitish seed-like bits is common. A yellow-tan with hints of green is typical for infants who are formula-fed.
If your baby is passing stools that are unusually hard or pebble-like, and he’s straining without success or he’s excessively fussy, he may be constipated. If baby is constipated Mommy’s Bliss Constipation Ease* is pediatrician recommended to safely and naturally ease occasional constipation and promote regular bowel movements*. If baby’s symptoms do not get better or you have any concerns at all call your pediatrician immediately.
