How often should my baby poop?

Question

Hi! My son is 1,1 year old. He poos only once every 2-3 days. Is it normal? I am sorry for such a delicate question!

  1. If he feels well, eats as usual, no stomach cramps, no constipation, then everything is okay!

  2. It depends whether your baby is on formula or on breastfeeding. If you breastfeed, then it’s even ok to poop once every 4 days. If he is on formula, then you should see how he feels. Don’t worry anyway!

  3. It’s normal, but if it disturbs you, then add more yogurts and fruits to his diet. Also don’t give him any cookies or bread for now.

  4. You can add some prune juice to the water that you’re giving to him. It contains many nutrients and helps metabolism.

  5. Add a few drops of olive oil to vegetable purees, it should help!

  6. Maybe reconsider some solids that you’re giving to him. For example, stop giving rice to him while he doesn’t poop normally. Add more vegetables and fruits to his regimen instead.

  7. I think the best thing to do is to take him to your pediatrician. I am sure it’s normal if you breastfeed him, but you can check just in case.
