So dd has not pooed since yesterday evening. I keep hoping at every appy change, but nothing.
I am a bit concerned because she did not put on any weight after she reached her birthweight at two weeks. At 3weeks her weight was still the same. She will be weighed on Monday and am concerned because I dont think she poos or wees enough.
She has around 5 wet nappies a day.
I am worried that she doesn't feed enough.
She also seems uncomfortable when I try to get her to latch on deeply, although her latch has improved and I don't have any pain.

I think you'll get a better idea of what's happening when your baby is weighed on Monday....I agree, it's unusual (at this age) for poos to be infrequent, but of itself it is not a problem. It's just a sign to check weight and feeding effectiveness.

All may be ok
