Answer: If you are breastfeeding no need to worry.once in 7 days or multiple times in a day is quite common. Check out on the pee count,it should be min 7-8 times a day. If possible do a slight massage to the stomach in clockwise and anticlockwise direction.and bicycling the legs. Hope this helps.

Question: My baby is 9 days old and since 5 days he has not passed motion...
Answer: Hi dear As the only source of feed for the baby is breast milk there is nothing to worry for 10 days.. if the baby is not feeding properly or if you feel that the normal urination and other activities are reduced you can go to the paed doctor. You keep feeding the baby on regular intervals and there might be a chance that if the baby's stmach fills completely and still feeding continues he or she will pass motion.. keep observing his stomach, it should be loose always. If its hard then check with doctor after 10 days if the baby doesnt pass stool.
