5 months poop pattern

Joanne - posted on 02/04/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




my baby is now 5 months old and is total breastfeed she has not started on any solids.
she used to be pooping once every 3 days. In recent days she has been pooping daily and at least 2 times a day. The poop looks pretty much the same though just in lesser quantity. should i be concern with this poop pattern? I have started her on pro biotics i am not sure if they will help at all. any moms with total breastfed baby encounter this same situation?

Hi Joanne, my baby girl will be 6 months on the 22nd of Feb and she was exclusively breastfeed until she was 5 and half months. We have had similar situation before. It lasted for couple of days and got back to normal cycle. Now that she has started on her solids (feeding once a day for now), she poops once everyday and the poop color has also changed quite a bit.
I won't be worried so long as the poop looks same and the baby doesn't show any signs of pain or discomfort.
