  • No, they say that you should have a bowel movement within 2 or 3 days of having a baby. You should call your doctor. If you wait much longer you could end up with some issues.

  • I also had problems with that after giving birth... They gave me stool softener but it took about 2 weeks until I finally could do number 2...

  • drink lots of water, eat lots of high fiber foods (fruits (not banana), vegetables, whole grains and legumes).
