Question: Baby not pooping since past 3 days.Is it normal?
Answer: Babies get constipated due to so many reasons
like maybe the baby is not taking sufficient milk
Or maybe your water intake is less
Or might you are feeding formula milk to your child
But still don't worry it is commonly seen in infants.
some babies pass stools once in 7 days while some pass even 7 times in one day so both are considered perfectly normal in babies.
If the baby is uncomfortable with this
Then you can massage your baby's tummy-
Massage below the navel with gentle but firm pressure with your fingertips for minimum 3 minutes
You can also do cycling motion of legs to release the gas
You can also use glycerine suppository which stimulates the babies rectum and helps to pass stool, but using a suppository occasionally is fine don't do it on a regular basis otherwise your baby will be dependent on this to have a bowel movement
if not sure you can take stool softeners like
EZ lax or Mom plus but after consulting your pediatrician
