I have a question about baby's BM (or poop). When my son was just 1 or 2 months old, he used to go #2 4 or 5 times a day. Slowly, his frequency decreased to twice daily. After he was introduced to rice cereal (at age 5 months) his BM decreased to once daily to every other day; when he finally didn't go for 5 days! He was cranky and gassy and we took him to see our doctor. Our pediatrician has repeatedly told us that it is OK for baby to go sometimes once a week. So many other "experienced" moms tell me that a breastfed baby goes every day several times a day. My son is breastfed, and he doesn't poop as often...So I don't know what to do....What do other pediatrician's say?
Thanks a lot!
