I've written before about our struggle with poops. Our baby is 15 days old and has only pooped on her own twice since bringing her home. I cannot keep up with breastmilk demand so i supplement with formula (1oz breastmilk 1oz formula) and not every feed, maybe three feeds a day or i'd be glued to the breastpump which is unrealistic.

My baby is only six days old but i figured to try and see how she'd take to the pacifier, as a test. It went too well - now it's hard to take it away. Anything else sets her into a hissy fit. Any suggestions or folks with similar situations? I understand this is far too young to start this habit :(
We switched to formula on Wednesday to supplement since I couldn’t breastfeed the appropriate amount, per the hospitals recommendation. Since Wednesday my baby hasn’t pooped. No signs of distress really, she’s definitely gassy and we feed her 1oz every two hours. Still waiting nervously . Anybody go thru something similar in the early stages?
