Babies on exclusive breastfeeding can poo up to 12 times in a day or not at all for 2 weeks. As far as the poo is normal (yellow/mustard colour and like egusi) there is no cause for worry.

Good day ma, the case of excessive sweat (hyperhidrosis) is not so common but it does exist... Keep your child hydrated, give a lot of fluid preferably water.. Reduce the temperature of the AC more so as to make the room cooler. There's no need for reducing your child's activity.. They need it. If you are still bothered about the sweat, visit a paediatrician to confirm if it's a case of true hyperhidrosis"

Just continue breastfeeding your baby exclusively, make sure you are lactating well, empty one breast before offering the other.you can also express breastmilk and feed her using a clean cup and spoon. Download and watch all our videos on breastfeeding.

lactation is all about demand and supply; the more you put your baby to breast, the more milk you produce. A good way of producing more is also expressing your breast milk. by expressing, you are inadvertently signalling to your body to produce more. Eating well and resting well also contribute to a good milk supply. Get someone to attend to baby while you catch a good nap. Wish you all the best.

It's a normal phenomenon and don't mistake it for constipation too. Just the baby "feeling" movement of gas and stool which they perceive as discomfort....It's not a problem and no need for any treatment or remedy at this time" .It is a passing phase and as they get older, they stop crying.
