    LO poos about 5 times a day. I asked the MW about it when she was two weeks old she and said its totally normal for a newborn. Now she is 7 weeks and is still the same. For those of you exclusively BFing how many poos does your LO do and how old are they?

    I posted about this earlier today. H was doing 4 or 5 a day then on Friday none at all. He did one massive one on saturday and then none on Sunday. He's just done one now and it wasn't very big. I was a little worried too x

    Thanks for the replies. Sounds lile shes not the only one. She was up to 8/9 a day for a while there. Now its more like 5/6. I know they are supposed to do less poos when they get older, was just wondering when 'older' is!

    My two were pooping all day from birth until about 5 weeks, then they dramatically changed, and now they only poo every few days! I had to take my boy to the docs yesterday because he was so uncomfortable and full of poo and gas. We now some meds to make them go easier, nd they are much happier babies after some poo explosions!
