I should know the answer, this being DD2, but I don't remember. After 3 days of no poo (previously she'd been doing 2 or 3 liquidy poos a day) we have pasty poo. Is this constipation or normal slowing down of BF baby poo?
She has been struggling with wind and so is on Infacol - I wonder if that has caused this?

Thoughts gratefully received..

'As long as there's plenty of wet nappies, all is well smile My dd is 8 weeks old, ebf and has mini phases like this. She was on infacol too - she was very windy and actually has mild reflux. We've actually found colief better when she's really suffering. Try eating prunes too - tip from the paediatrician at hospital. It really works, at least in DD's case. A day on prunes from me and she's emptying her bowels effortlessly all over the shop. Literally! Congrats by the way

Thanks TMWTBB - most reassuring. Not sure my body can take prunes atm - have had a reaction to some anti-bs and am a bit 'loose' at present!
