  • With a new little baby the rule of thumb is: When in doubt call. Don't hesitate, even if it's nothing you'll feel better. Better safe than sorry.

  • I would call. But I think I am reading that it has been 2 days or less. I really would not worry.

  • is your baby formula fed or breast fed some time formula does that to a baby. i call the dr cause my son had the same problem. first we did suppositorys but he still was constipated then he said put a tea spoon of dark kyro syrup in Evey other one of his bottles and that worked like a charm but never do any thing till you clear it with your dr first

  • Breastfed or formula fed? If she is breastfed, keep her skin to skin on you and encourage her to breastfeed more frequentlly.

  • She is probably fine. If she is getting breastmilk than she can go a long time without a BM. If she is acting normal and not uncomfortable than I wouldn't worry about it quite yet.
