My Son is 5 weeks old, exclusively BF, and hasn't had a BM in 9 days. I am starting to get really concerned due to the fact that he seems to be in a lot of pain. He is passing a lot of gas (and he screams when he does), and spitting up a lot/projectile vomiting. I brought him to the doctors a week ago from today because of his reflex, and was advised to keep an eye on him, and to also change my diet, not eat any dairy. The doctor also told me to bring him in every week for a nurse visit just to check his weight gain. Which I am doing today.
Has anyone else had this problem? The doctor told me that it's normal for exclusively BF babies to go up to a week without having a BM. But it's been 9 days....... =/ Can anyone please give me some advice? This is my second child, and fortunately our first son never had any of these problems.
