My 11week old hasn't had a poop in 48 hours. Should I be concern?

It's common for newborns not to poo for days. What helped us was using some baby oil/olive oil and rubbing around the belly button slowly in a circle. It can help when they are constipated.

well its like a yes and a no. if you notice that your baby is fussy then that means that they are having a hard time to go to the restroom. what you should do is massage the tummy area and do like bicycle kicks on the baby's legs. move them up and down and also around. it should help because thats what happened with my baby and it worked. hope this helps
