Re: Day 8 of NO POOP!!!
8 days isn't really in the problematic zone yet. Before you take your LO to the doc, try some warm baths (if you get in with the baby I bet you she'll poop on you, mine always does! ) and/or a little prune juice.
As long as the baby does not seem uncomfortable and is peeing normally, I think what you're seeing is very much in the normal range. However, if:
- she looks and acts uncomfortable,
- cries, turns red, or strains while trying to poop,
- produces a hard, pellet-like stool that rolls right off the diaper when she finally does go,and/or
- goes significantly more than a week without pooping,
then you should suspect constipation and see your pediatrician.
