Baby’s bowel habits may change. Many breastfed babies may change their bowel habits. They may go from having several bowel movements per day to having fewer than one a day. This may have happened earlier, or it may start happening now. This is because breast milk is easy to digest. As long as the bowel movement is soft, the baby is not constipated.
The bowel habits of a formula fed baby are similar to the breastfed baby. Like a breastfed baby, a formula fed baby will start out with several bowel movements each day. This number will decline to about one a day. Your baby may have wet diapers often. This means she is drinking the right amount.
