My girl poo-ed late on the 2nd day.
She poo-ed twice that day then after that every day once again like normal
I dont't give my girl plain water at all, but i do give her gripe water once or twice a day depending on how many times i shower her that day cos i always give her after shower.
I dont't really follow the recommended scoops shown on the milk tin too cos i think the milk will be very heaty. I'll normally put half a scoop lesser than the recommended amount shown.
i've asked the doc during my girl's 3rd month vac at the polyclinic regarding her poo-ing condition..
during first 2 weeks at birth, she poo many times a day, very very little, watery..
then slowly, her poo became sticky.. then she poo once every 2 days..
now, she poo once every 3 days.
doc said its normal coz fm is heaty. up to 4 days also ok. but cannot over 4 days never poo.. else needa see doc..
its really up to individual to give baby drink how much of water.
some say infant do not need to drink water at all coz fm is also water-based, etc.
but for my opinion, i think baby still need to drink alil water after each feed. to at least clear the milk inside his/her mouth.
else it will cause gum problem is the milk stains on their gum.
sometimes my girl ask for milk earlier than the "3-hourly feed", we will give her a lil water to drag her timing.
so far, this method has worked out perfectly on my side. n when days she drink more water, she poo everyday...
so i guess, give some more water, baby then will poo. at least help them to reduce the heaty-ness in them..
sometimes, baby will refuse to drink milk. maybe its becoz there's wind in their tummy. let them slowly suck their milk bah.
this period of difficult feeding will pass over very soon~
btw, my girl weighs 5kg, ht was 58.5cm on her 3rd month vac. i suppose she's still very small compared to others?
n, yes, ML gonna be over real soon n i hate it ttm. really feeling so reluctant to go back to work. sigh!
