HELP PLEASE!!! 3 mth old's BM
vanessagw23 posted:
my daughter is 3 mths old, breastfeed. I'm concerned because she is soooooo gas-y and farts all the time, but is only having a BM every other day or 2 days in-between. Is this normal???
mathgypsy2 responded:
Totally normal. Many BF babies change at 3-4 months to only having a BM every few days some go 1 time a week. As long as the poo is soft and the right color its not something to worry about.

Thank you!

Totally normal. Make sure you are burping her well after every feeding, that helps with the gas.
