My Baby is 3 months old and she is going on 4 days without having a poop. I’m breast feeding her and she eats every 2-3 hours. I thought she was getting enough or at least she seems like she is. Now her doctors told me if she isn't pooping that means she’s not eating enough and not gaining weight… Is that true? Could I not have enough of a milk supply to giving her what she needs? Or is normal for her to not have a BM in days? I need help!!

Totally normal for breast fed babies to go up to a week - 10 days without a bm. There is so little waste in breast milk, therefore less poo!

I would think that if she isn't still hungry after feeding her she is eating enough, perhaps you need to drink more water to help boost your milk supply... perhaps she is constipated... maybe get more fiber in your diet
