When it comes to a baby’s bowel movements, there’s no “normal ” or “standard” number of times they should defecate— only what’s normal for your baby. It’s not only a matter of frequency of stools, but you also need to pay attention to their aspect. If the stools of your baby are hard and dry and cause discomfort, then he/she is more likely to suffer from constipation.
There are multiple reasons for constipation in infants, and most of them are related to your baby’s diet. Constipation could be observed when you:
• Stop breastfeeding and switch to an inadequate infant formula
• Start introducing solid foods to his/her diet
• Do not introduce enough fibers to his/her diet after 1 year of age.
