Poo strike

My 16 week old bf ds hasn't had a poo for just over a week. Have bf dds but never knew them to go this long without a poo. Is this normal or should I be worried?

Any tips for helping things along? Did the warm bath thing but nothing so far.

Is he ok in himself, any discomfort, hard tummy?

If he's fine then I wouldn't worry. There was a thread recently about a baby who went 21 days!

As long as he isn't in pain it is ok. Don't think they even bother checking it out until it gets past the 2 week stage.

Thanks for replies. He's been a bit unsettled this afternoon but has been asleep for past 3 hours so clearly not in pain. I'll try to stop worrying!
