All the questions the lady up there asked ^ Cuz if he is old enough I always give my lil man juice & that seems to do the job. Sounds like he is constipated!

Perfectly normal for an EBF baby to go up to 2 weeks without pooping. If his tummy is hard though try a warm bath with tummy massage and bicycle his legs. Take a rectal temp (use lots of lube or Vaseline) also move it in a slow circular motion to kinda "open" things up. Make sure you dont stick it in to far. You can always try 1-2oz of apple,pear, or prune juice.

When he starts crying & grunting.. Always massage his lower belly & make his legs go like he would be bicycling. I know u can give a tiny amount of juice at that age. But I cant quite remember how much. My son was constipated for 2 months on & off till I found the right formula. He will be 2 next month so its been awhile since I did the juice thing. (how much juice & water mix)!

In that case I'd say take him into his pediatrician. As soon as possible. I gave my son the gerber baby prune juice but I don't think he was that young. Maybe try some infant water? I heard that helps tons.

He doesnt need to go the doctor yet. There are plenty of things she can try at home first and if none of them work then usually just a phone to the doctor is needed not an office visit.

:!: it's normal for breast fed babies to not poop since they absorb every bit of beast milk.
