ever since my child was born (now he's 4 month), he has bowel movement every other day. Sometimes, every two day. Is this normal? If not, what can I do? I asked his doctor and he said it is okay. I thought baby supposes to go a few time a day.
Emily is not constipated by no means and she goes every 2-3 days. I have talked to her pediatrician about it and he said it was fine. She has done this since three weeks. As long as baby is having lots of wet diapers and does not have hard stools baby is fine. Now if he seems like he is grunting more and bearing down that could also be that he has got a mild case of colic my doc said. It is just that he is learning how to use his bowel muscles and will bare down and push. Emily does this every once in a while now. It was worse around 3-4 weeks. I hope this helps.
