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???

Hi vanessa!

So sorry to get to you late, but wanted to share this info!

According to the WebMD Diapering a Newborn article , "Breast milk tends to be absorbed more completely -- sometimes there is so little residue to come out that a baby may not have a BM for days." So, it sounds like you guys are doing okay!

Here is the Scoop on Poop , which is another great read for keeping up with your newborn's bm colors and making sure that things are normal.

Best wishes!
Amelia
