Answer: Hi.. Breast fed babies can easily go for two weeks without a poopy diaper once they are two to three months old. Breast milk is exactly what your baby needs, and so there is a little waste product left for the baby to poop out. Do not worry, because breast fed babies never constipate. Still, if you want apply little asafoetida mixed in luke warm water on the tummy of your baby, it will give the toddler some comfort..
Answer: Hello dear It is normal if ur baby not lassed poop from last 2 days. It is normal with breastfeeding babies. Just check the wet diapers of baby. Breast milk gets easily digest and thers nothing left to poop out. Just mke sure u continue Breastfeeding ur baby at regular intervals is the only remedy.

Question: Hi my baby is 10 months old. He poops once in three or four days. Is it normal?
Answer: Hllo dear ur baby s 10 months old dear the baby who takes solids should do poop daily .dear may be due to constipation he s not doing poop daily .giving him an additional 2-4 ounces (1/4-1/2 cup) of water after each feeding to help bowels flush properly. Prune juice has a natural laxative effect, but pear or apple juices also work well to relieve minor constipation. To avoid gassiness, start slowly with less than 2 ounces of juice after feedings.Bananas, rice cereal, carrots, and cheese are a mainstay of most infant diets--they also tend to have a binding effect on stool. Foods like apricots, pears, prunes, peaches, and plums are better choices to help avoid constipation. Sometimes making your baby’s body move will help get his bowels moving, too. Place your baby on his back in front of you. Lift up his legs and move them in a circular motion to mimic the motions of peddling a bicycle. .With your baby on her back, place your hand on her belly button. Using a clockwise motion, massage your baby’s tummy in ever bigger circles. Follow your baby’s cues as to how much pressure to use. If she fusses or cries, you’re pressing too hard.
