My 3 month old is 14 lbs, she has been exclusively breastfed and is not pooping as of recently. She is only having a bowel movement every week, week and a half. The pediatrician is telling me that she is absorbing all of the breast milk because she is growing, but how can a baby go from 10 dirty diapers a day to nothing! I don't know what to do she seems to be getting more uncomfortable by the day. This has been going on for almost 2 months and the doctors are just ignoring it, I really don't think this is something to ignore. Does anyone have any suggestions? Or have the same problem of a breastfed baby not pooping?
