My 5 month old EBF baby has not had a BM in about 6 days.  I know its completely normal for EBF  babies to go a few days between BMs, but I'm starting to get a little worried.  She is having plenty of wet diapers (8+/day).  She is starting to get a little fussy during the day and sleeping at night is almost non-existent the last few days.  I think she's teething, but I don't know if that is affecting her BMs.  Her dr isn't open until tomorrow, and I will be calling in the am.  Is there anything I can do for her in the meantime?

My daughter only had a bowel movements once a week or so until I added other things to her diet about 6 months of age. Her pediatrician said its normal for EBF babies to go once every week or even two weeks! Shocked me but I trusted him and shes fine LOL. As long as she is not acting like she has to go and can't she'll be fine.
