She hasn't pooped in about 2 days and is trying SO hard! She keeps grunting and pushing and then she kind of whimpers a little. Shes still getting wet diapers, at least with every feeding, and theres been no change in the feedings. She can fart..if that makes any difference..
She gets formula during the day and the breast at night. She also gets rice cereal 1-2 times a day but she's been on the cereal for almost a month now.. so its not anything new to her...
Iv'e heard a little bit of apple juice and water together gets things moving for babies.. any thoughts?

I know this is gonna sound really gross... but, if you've tried everything and nothing works - do this - put a lot of Vaseline on your pinkie finger (make sure your nails are very short and west rubber gloves) and insert it in the baby's butt. It works like an enema without the chemicals and helps the child be able to 'go' on his own. I promise, it doesn't hurt the baby. It hurts more to be constipated.
