My baby girl just now trun 4 months old and has pooped maybe 10 times, sometimes she gose up to three weeks at a time without pooping. She was 2 days old before she frist pooped and i didnt think that was right either but her doctors didnt seemed to worried and let me bring her home anyway. Her doctors told me to just give her purn/apple juice and still nothing happens. I rum her tummy downerd, work her legs that dont help either. I even put her in a setting posion like she is on a potty chir and still nothing happens even warm bath's dont help but that dose seem to calm her down at times. She dose push like she is going to poop and breaks out in a cold clamy sweat but yet the poop wont come out. She cry's all the time and worst at night, she dosent sleep in the day time only like 5 minents at a time, I cant even get her to lay on her tummy. I brestfeed my older child and he never did any thing like this. Dose anyone know any thing else i can try or what i should do? Please help

I had the same issue when my now 9 month old was between 4 and 5 months. Around this age they do tend to get constipated no matter what and don't have stools every day. I hope you're having some relief now and so is your baby.

I give her 1 to 1 1/2 jars of baby food a day because if i didnt she would suck me to death and she has been on that just a little over a month now. She wights almost 14 lbs, which the doctor said that was good. she did finlly poop a little bit today and is was solf but she acted like it killed her to do that. I change about 4 to 5 pee diappers aday, sometimes 1 or 2 more but no more then that.

my first didnt go quite so long but still had trouble going. we got told to express some milk and put some brown sugar.
Pear juice works alot better than apple juice, apple juice used to make our son constipated.
Warm water, if you are worried you can get constipation drops we had to use those on our son when he started formula. Also make sure you drink alot, and something like metamucil help my daughter when she was heaps constipated about that age.
