It should be okay. My daughter would go days without a bm and it would still look loose. They tend to absorb more of breast milk than formula and have less bms. With her having plenty of wet diapers i'm sure that's the case. If she was having less than 5 wet then I would be more concerned. There is also a Breastfeeding community that you can post this on.View Thread
Regarding the BMs it is normal to even go about 2 weeks without having one.
The issue with him being so gassy may also have to do with something she is eating. Have her log what she eats each day to help determine what may be giving him problems...some babies have issues when their moms drink milk. My DD had more gass if I ate broccolli and peanuts. When they get older there will be less issues as their system matures. HTH!View Thread
This happened to my lo also. She is now 4 1/2 months and is doing better. I noticed it had gotten better when she started using the stage two nipples for her bottles. I think it has to do with the fast letdown because I still have it and she is able to handle it a lot better. Do you pump and feed him by bottle? How does he do after that? At his next check up I would bring it up again.View Thread
I am A- and my husband is A I had the rogahm sp? shot with both DD's as they were A
My parents are AB and A so basicly I am RH Negative blood type A. It just depends on what the DNA desides. At first I thought that it wasn't possible to have a negative out of two possitives but when you are positive you actually have positive or negative to pass down. she only has the two negative genes since she is negative so it will depend on if he passed the positive or negative gene. That is why if he is also negative she would not have to get the shot at 28 weeks.
If the baby was positive she would have gotten a shot within 24 hrs after giving birth so she will not have any issues getting pregnant again. If she didn't get a shot the baby may be negative but the hospital or the doctor should be able to give the mother that info..I had asked both times when I got the shot what their blood type was and the nurse was able to tell me.View Thread
My dd took around 2 months to transition to the sippy cup. It helped that she was in daycare and when sshe moved up to the next class all of the other children were using sippy cups. Seeing all the others using sippy cups had her change within the first week. Its just like with food they don't want to try, you have to keep offering it before it will take. I always offered the sippy cup first let her wait for 15 minutes then gave her the bottle if she refused.View Thread
my dd is the same age and she does the same thing. It is normal unless it is a large amount and forcefull. at this point that is probably about the correct amount of formula as it fills them up more tan breast milk. I am bf and she takes about 5 oz every 4 hrs if I pump. As long as he is gaining weight, content and having 6-8 wet diapers he should be fine. Newborns usually do not over eat, they will turn their head away. If he wants more he will let you know. You may try to burp him more often...1 oz...if he will let you. HTH.View Thread
Congrats and welcome! My name is Olivia and my baby girl Madelyn Renee was born 7/10. We are also breastfeeding and still going strong. You can also use the breastfeeding community if you have any questions about breastfeeding. Sorry you had to go thru all the heat (100's), we live close to Houston but had her before the consistant upper 90's and 100's but now that she is here I'm sure everything is much better.View Thread
