My 4 months old girl has not passed motion for 6 days, Is it okay?

She is taking breast milk.

02 November 2012

My baby is only taking breast milk and her poo is not hard and has no shape. It is watery like curry gravy.

I was told this is normal for breastfed babies, is it?

Dear Mavismahlp

Constipation will be a concern if your baby’s stools are hard, pellet like and painful when she poos.

Typically constipation occurs around the time weaning foods are introduced, 6 months of age.

If you find her stools hard as well, you can try some lactulose 2.5mls two times a day for a week to regulate her bowel habits.

Yes. Breastfeeding stools are usually soft and bubbly at times.
