  • If you're exclusively breastfeeding then this is normal. If not then talk to your doctor.

  • Call your doctor first and ask if this is a common symptom. You can try prune juice or peas to help her go. Either have been known to cause babies to poo.

  • My baby's doc told me to use Karo syrup. I cant remember how much though. you just add it to her breast milk or formula. It worked wonders dor my little one. Ask your doc to be sure though.

  • my daughter had the same problem and i was formula feeding her. it resolved on its own i have her a little extra water about 1-2oz that helped her.
