Yes I’m writing about pee and poo

So baby had her second visit to the doctor today.  The first visit was 2 days post discharge from the hospital and the second a week from that.  I have to say I’m proud of my little girl for not only putting on her birth weight but then some.  For a new mom, who I hate to admit questions lots of things, it is comforting that we’re doing this right.

So my question of the day is how much peeing and pooing is enough?  My little one hasn’t pooed in over 24 hours.  I asked the doctor, after having Googled this for hours, and he said that not all kids have to go everyday.  As long as they are peeing and eating and their stomach isn’t hard then you’re okay.  Who knew?!?  When we left the hospital we were given a chart that the baby should follow.  What happens when your child does not fall on the chart?  Where can a parent turn? Hopefully this will serve as a place for you to turn.  Hey I admit I don’t have all the answers but I promise to share what I find out as I go along.

A little ditty about Jack and really in all seriousness I'm a daughter, sister, wife and mother. I'm a Greek-American, who has transplanted in Canada. As a first time mom I'm sharing some things as I go along.

  1. I found the first month with Ryan he would go a couple 24 hour periods without pooping. After some moderate panic and mayham on my part I asked a bunch of momma friends and found that was pretty normal. Some of their kiddies only went once every 5 days… As long as there was no belly distension and they were nursing/ eating well, they would eventually regulate themselves. Your doing great momma! Trust your gut!

  2. Sometimes reading up too much can cause much anxiety and unnecessary worry! Babies do their own things…. Relax and enjoy each day, spittle and all! Jonathan had a problem with some reflux when he was a baby… I was spit up on and thrown up on more times than I can remember!
