Do you breastfeed? Babies sometimes dont poo for 5days and its nothing to be worried about. Unless your baby has cramps or other symptoms then i would go to the doctor.But definatly dont just give any medication whatsoever without asking your doctor.

You really need to talk to your doc. That is really hard on their system and miralax has the dosage for adults not kids or you really need to find out from your doc it that is ok and what dosage is appropriate for a 4 wk old if any at all. Also there are SO many other things you can use BEFORE going to miralax. My question to you is why do you feel your 4 wk old needs miralax? That is pretty young to determine that they have a constipation problem and need something as harsh as a laxative to make them go. Often times when you start giving laxatives it is really hard to get your system to not depend on it.
