ETA: he pooped 2 minutes after posting this :P
How do you know?
My 1 month old is BF'd and usually has a huge ol' diaper, once, if not twice per feeding,
and now he hasn't had one since maybe...4am? (and it's 11:50 now)
So a handful of feedings have passed.
But he seems to be pushing grunting :?



Does this sound like constipation or am i just over-worrying?



Might be a post 'n run so thanks in advance.

It's pretty normal. My LOs had one every feeding for the first few weeks, and then it eventually tapered down to once a day.

Hmmm. If he seems to be stressing there could be an issue, buttttt my son was around 1 month when he started only pooping like 1 time a week.! It is typical for breastfed babies to only poop once a week because there is very little waste!
