    no poo after 1st solids

    hi,
    i fed my baby organic rice as her first solids 2 days ago. She loved it. She had one runny typical breastfed poo after she ate, but i have fed her the same tine same amount each day now for 2 more days and she hasnt pooed. A couple of farts and peel but no poo.

    is this normal? is she bulking up? Her stomach doesnt feel hard.

    "normal" for a baby is anywhere from 4 times per day to once every 4 days...

    relax... if she doesn't seem to be in any discomfort it's ok... however, after 4 days, you may want to take her to the doctor...

    also, make sure that it is "tiny" amounts that we are talking... and that she's getting plenty of liquids

    if you are feeding rice cereal, you may want to mix it with a little prune juice instead of water, that should help a little

    the box said 1 tablespoon for baby's first meal. So i followed the box. woke up this morning and still no poo.....

    i havemt fed her the solids yet but will be in about 2 hours . This will be the 4th day of solids so if she doesnt poo today it will be 3 days of not pooing.

    Hey cristletips,
    Maybe you should change the solids and stop giving rice (which constipates) and give her a richer cereal who will help her transit to "unblock"
    My advice is to call your oediatrician if she still doesnt poo today...
    In either ways, let us know !

    I think this is quite normal when first introducing solids. The same happened to my baby. During the first 2 weeks of solids, he would only poo once every 3 or 4 days. I guess his little digestive system needed time to get used to the solids. After a week of baby rice cereal, I introduced single vegetable purees, and his poos soon started to became more regular. Agree with Carang about the liquid intake, I breastfed on demand and I also gave a few sips of warm water after the solids.

    Well my advice may be different because I never gave hime rice cereal. I started solid with carrots I added in the milk then decreased the amount of milk & increased the amount of carrots untill it was "real" solid. No problem of poo.

    I used 4 tablespoons of my bm to the cereal, and she has also been feeding from me as normal on demand. She has lots of pee diapers and seems to be in good spirits. She tries to poo i can see it in her face.

    I still havent given her the rice yet today.

    It's "Earth's Best" organic whole grain rice cereal "Babies perfect first solid food" it says.

    Still concerned since she was such a big pooer before thus my "leaking diapers" post!!
