Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My son is 2 months now and eats every 3-4 hours and drinks 9-10 oz?

4 answers
He doesn't eat anything but breast milk, But lately he only poops once every 3 days. I don't know if that's normal.

My son drank 6oz bottles when he was 2 days old. My newest baby drinks 9ish ounces in a 3-4 hour period. She poops once evry 1-2 days.As long as the poops are a normal color and consistency (yellow, orange, brown, or green and that seedy, runny consistency) don't worry. Are you pumping breast milk and bottle feeding, or are you nursing? 
He doesn't latch very well so I have been pumping.
my 4 1/2 month old daughter eats 8 oz every 2-3 hours, and then a jar of baby food after a bottle. as long as his poop doesn't look like little pebbles, and he's not crying while he poops he is unlikely to be constipated. my daughter only poops one time a day.
It worried me because with my other kids at that age they pooped every day like 1-3 times. And my oldest bryer ate 5 oz my daughter ate 8 oz.
