Topic: newborn poop ??

You'd think I should know this by now...

How often is too often for a newborn to poop?  Ivy eats a LOT, and then poops a lot.  Like 12-18 times a day.  I have not been able to fully transition her into cloth diapers because I only have 8 that fit her right now (she has NO tush!) and she can go through those in a matter of hours.  I know because I am an over-producer there is a slight foremilk/hindmilk imbalance, so I try to feed her twice off each side before swicthing breasts so she gets more hindmilk, her poops occasionally have a greenish tinge, but for the most part are yellow and seedy and normal looking.  I know BF babes poop a lot, but this is WAY more then either Boog or Moosie did!

So should I be concerned?  And if anyone had a major pooper, did they slow down on their elimination a little over time?  Right now it is just mildly frustrating because I feel like I am ALWAYS changing her, which is not her favorite activity (and she's worse then a baby boy, she pees on me everytime I'm changing her!)

Finn pooped pretty much every diaper change for the first couple weeks. It was insane.

Same with G, almost all of his diapers were poopy for the first several weeks.

*whew*  I didn't THINK it was a huge deal, but everyone seems amazed at how often she poops, I thought I would ask!  Just in the last 2 days she has started eating more at each feeding and less frequently (every 1.5 hours instead of every hour!) so hopefully that will help too!

Re: newborn poop ??

Oh gosh, K poops all the time! But pedi said that was norm so like Heather said, no worries!! We tried cloth the other day and within 2 hours we went thru 5~so we are back to disposables until we slow down!!

Our worlds collided and together we've been blessed with perfection!

Re: newborn poop ??

Justin pooped with very wet diaper change, so it was at least 10-12 a day for the first month or so.  I think that's pretty normal for some babies.  Still, yesterday he pooped 3x and today 2x already.  I have a friend who cloth diapers and finds it super-easy, but come to find out, her little boy only poops 1x a WEEK.  Okay, I might have succeeded with cloth diapering if that were the case vs. 1-3x a day for a 1 & 2 year old!  But anyway, I just wanted to share that there are all kinds of normal when it comes to pooping.

H has always been on the opposite end of the spectrum.  Since he was a week or so old until just the past couple of weeks, he only pooped once every two or three days.  He's just recently begun to be more regular (usually once per day).  We were worried that he wasn't going enough!  So every little one is different!

Re: newborn poop ??

Bronx is completely opposite. He has pooped once every other day since birth. If we are lucky he will poop everyday. He is formula fed so I am sure that has something to do with it. I can't imagine changing that many poopy diapers. I had no idea that breastfed babies pooped that much.
