My baby of 2 weeks plus cries a lot because of stomach pain and poo a lot, what should I do
Colic is common in babies. Unfortunately, there are no proven treatments that consistently help every baby. It usually starts a few weeks after birth and often improves by age 3 months. By ages 4 to 5 months, the majority of babies with colic have improved.
My baby is 3weeks plus, pooed last on Monday night but have not poo again since then. Should i be worried?
Babies on EBF do not need to poo daily, they can stay up to 2weeks without having to poo. Sometimes, they can even poo up to 12 times in a day. As long as the stools are normal. There's nothing to worry about.
Also, you don't need to give your baby water, as breast milk contains all the water baby needs.

Please my baby of one month old poo is very strong and she always struggles each time she wants to poo pls what can I use?
Hard poo (constipation) is very rare among EBF babies.. I do hope you are not confusing the groaning as constipation? Most babies groan even with pasty stool. And it's OK if an EBF doesn't poo everyday or even up to 2 weeks but if truly the poo of your EBF is hard as in like an adult poo, then there's need to investigate by a paediatrician or paediatric surgeon

My baby of 7weeks poo is light green and it has mucus. Is it something to worry about? She has been on exclusive breastfeeding.
Greenish stool suggests inadequate feeding or starvation.
Always empty one breast before switching to another.
As for the mucus, kindly pay attention to your own diet and avoid herbal remedies or drugs that are not prescribed by the doctors which may pass via the breast milk to affect the baby. Avoid heavy spicy or flavored foods as well as some also affect the baby when passed via the breast milk to the baby.
If the mucus persists in the stool kindly see a paediatrician.
