Forgive me if this has been asked/ answered several times I attempted a search and found a lot on potty training but nothing on EBF infants.
At 8 weeks DS went 7 days w/o pooping and with the advice of our pedi we intervened with diluted prune juice, warm bath, rectal stimulation and even expressed BM from newborn (colostrum) timeframe. He pooped w/i 24hrs. The next week he went 8 days w/o pooping and with no intervention he went on day 9 and 10. Now this past week was the 3rd week in a row and he finally pooped on Day 10, 24hrs after receiving diluted prune juice.
Our pedi does not seemed concerned as his growth and weight are normal, he's happy and doesn't appear uncomfortable and the bowel movements are liquid and there is a lot of it when it does finally come. The concern is coming from MIL and DHs Uncle who is a pedi in the PICU, he wants to rule out any diseases etc and feels this behavior is not normal but my pedi disagrees. Any experience, advice, info would be greatly appreciated. I'm just so confused on what to do now.
