Will she be ok or should I take here in?

My five month old hasn''t pooped for about 24 hours and has had only two wet diapers.  I've noticed a touch of a fever.  Should I wait it out for a while and see if she works it out or should I take her in right now.

  • Personally, I would wait. If there isn't a high fever the doc won't do much anyway. Make sure she is drinking plenty of formula/breastmilk and keep an eye on her.

  • Not pooping for 24 hours isnt bad.When its more than 3 days is when I get concerned.
    As for the wet diapers...I'm not sure..I would give the ped a call.
    Good Luck..hope baby is okay :)
