baby blow outs

My Baby is four weeks old today and is EBF, and up until a couple of days ago he would poop several times a day. Now all of a sudden he only poops once every day or every other day - and it is a massive blowout - I mean like a lake of poo in his diaper. Is this normal?? Is it something I am eating or doing??He still has several wet diapers so no problem there. Thanks mommas!!

    Totally normal! His system is regulating. In those first few weeks the reflex is to poop the minute there is any pressure, which leads to BMs pretty much every feeding. That reflex slows down a bit and now more pressure is required. And, just to keep mothering interesting, he may change things up again in a few weeks!

    We went through this same situation with all of our little ones! They often hit a growth spurt at this age as well so it may be that your little one is utilizing most of what he is consuming.

    Don't be alarmed if your baby has fewer bowel movements, he is not constipated unless his stool are hard and dry. it is normal :)

    Normal! My guy went through the same thing at exactly four weeks.
