Hello doctor,

My 3 month old son passes stool only every two days. He passes stool only after we insert a soap stick and stimulate his excretory movements. This has been happening for the past three weeks. Is this normal?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If your baby is breastfed, it is perfectly normal to pass stool less often.

On the other hand, it does not seem normal for such a young kid.

If it continues for more than two weeks, get him checked by a pediatrician.
