Hi everyone - I am a little stressed because my three-month old hasn't pooped since Friday. This is the second or third time he has gone this long - he has gone two or three days before, but this is almost five! The pediatrician said in breastfed babies, this is normal - it is even normal up to a week. But I can tell he is uncomfortable and sometimes it seems like he is straining. Plus, his last BM is thick like peanut butter. Other moms I talk to who breastfed their kids, their babies pooped everyday - sometimes multiple times. I'd like to hear your experiences and if you think I should wait it out or get a second opinion from another pediatrician. Thanks!
