I am beginning to worry, I am babysitting my 2 a half month

This answer was rated:

I am beginning to worry, I am babysitting my 2 a half month old nephew. He has not pooped since Friday at 3pm. What should I do? Should I be worried?
Dr. Singh :

Hi,

Dr. Singh :

Is he being fussy? Not drinking milk? Is his abdomen distended?

Dr. Singh :

It can be perfectly normal for him to not have a bowel movement for a few days at a time. But if you are noticing a change in him such as him being too fussy, not wanting to drink his milk, etc. then this may be a potential cause of concern. But if he is doing well otherwise, I wouldn't worry too much about it.
