  • Breast or formula fed? If EBF, around 3-6 weeks, the CAN start going up to 14ish days without a bowel movement, as long as it's not dry, hard, or pellet like. If FF, I'm not sure how long is OK, but I wouldn't worry after just one day.

  • No worried mommy. She will poop when she is good and ready. My daughter didnt poop for 2 days and I started to freak out. I took her to her ped and he said to go home and just wait. Later that day she went.. BOY, did she go lol.

    If you cant take the suspense lol... take her to her ped
