  • Our daughter's doctor told us that if she hasn't gone in four days, to give her a supository. Then he told us that if she does have a poop and they're hard and round, then she really is constipated. I would just talk to your child's doctor about it because she might need to be on a special formula or something.

  • With EBF babies they can safely go up to ten days without a BM, but since he is also eating formula, I don't know. I would think that the breastmilk would help him to digest the formula and the iron content of the formula would not be a problem.

  • This shouldn't exactly be raising a HUGE red flag, but I would call you pediatrician's office and see what they say. It can't hurt to atleast get some professional advice.
