A thread about poo & my 3 week old

My 3.5 week old hasn't pooed for 48 hours - previously she was pooing daily (soft and yellow).

Exclusively formula fed from birth. She does not seem to be in any discomfort and is weeing and eating normally.

Cycling legs / warm bath / tummy rubs haven't kicked anything off.

Should I be seeing the GP or is this normal for FF babies in your experience? I know it's quite normal for BF babies to go days but didn't think formula would be the same.

Thank you!

No sooner had I posted that than my daughter did the biggest, most explosive poo ever seen. It even reached the neck opening of her baby gro.

According to my HV when DD was that age it isquite normal for a baby not to poo for several days, even up to a week! And if their nappies are wet and they're in good spirits, they're fine.

I get a bit jittery if DD goes 48 hours without a poo, partially in concern for her digestive health and partially in concern for what will happen when the dam bursts.
