My newborn has suddenly started pooing way less. What's going on?

A newborn’s gut matures at about six weeks of age, so you will start to see their bowels regulate around that time. This means that you may suddenly notice a drastic reduction in the frequency of poos. If you’re worried though, it’s always advisable to talk to your GP or health visitor about this - but bear in mind that it is normal for bowels to start to regulate and slow down during this timeframe.
