  • I would call your pedi and ask for advice. Mine told me that BF babies can go up to 4 days without having a bowl movement as long as they're having enough wet diapers, but because you gave her formula, I'd be concerned.

  • i don't know anything about formula fed babies, but i was told with bf babies, that as long as they were still eating, it is okay. our ped had one ebf that pooed every two weeks. this was her normal.

  • Nurse like crazy. Breastmilk is the world's BEST laxative. And sounds like you need to avoid formula, or at least that brand.

  • USE A RECTAL THERMOMETER AND JUST STICK IT IN .....EVERY TIME DD WAS "BACKED UP " WE WENT TO THE DOCTOR AND AS SOON AS THEY TOOK HER TEMPERATURE SHE POOPED!
