  • babies can go a few days without pooping .
    call her pedi and ask about giving her some apple or prune juice to get things moving

  • there is baby suppositories you can use. I used them on my son. Make sure and ask a doctor first though

  • You can try water first. As uncomfortable as this sounds, take her temp rectally. It can help things to get moving.
