Our 16 week old baby has been pooing only every 10 days for the last 5 weeks. He is breastfed, very healthy and happy. The Community Health Nurse said it is perfectly normal for this age. Anyone else having similar experience????

My boy was the same. It is normal. The local health nurse even told me the record was going something like 45 days without pooping.

Yes my little girl is now 12 weeks and she once went almost 2 weeks before she pooped! It is kind of unsettling but normal for breastfed babies.
