Yeah I would probably take her to the doctor just to be safe.



 



But fyi...when my oldest had the issue, I realized it was because she was drinking undiluted juice. As soon as I started diluting it (atleast 50% water), she was okay.

If you recently intorduced her to a new food, it may of given her gas! Try some gas drops every time she eats for a day. That helped my 13 month old after hog dogs gave him gas!

Hey If everything is normal with going to the bathroom I would ask the doctor for peace of mind. Maybe just call the nurse and tal to her,she may have a suggeston.

another good question is does it hurt her when you touch it? You should probably take her to the doctor..

I second the question Allison asked. Sounds like she may be impacted if her BMs are not regular.
