Hi, this is the first time I have posted so hope I am doing ok. I am just wanting to know if there are any other mums out there who are breastfeeding their bubs and having poo probs!
My DD is 6 months old and 85% breasfed. She is on some solids (veges) and has approx 120 ml of formula at night.
When fully bf she only pooed every 12 days, now she poos every 4-5 days. She becomes incredibly distressed (even when she was fully bf), and cries in pain when pooing. However she is not constipated...poo is very soft. Have been to paediatrician who says it is just sensitive bowels (we do have irritable bowel syndrome and coeliac in family).
Anybody experienced anything similar and any advice???
