You should be concerned if the poop is too hard,has traces of blood or if the baby is straining to push it out.. I also learned that there are poop softeners fruit like pawpaw,pear among others and bananas are known to harden poop..

i went to my doctor. he said give her some orange juice but i think orange juice have acid that can effect and it's not suitable for little baby.

I always heard that too, but I lived in Florida, and they were hot. Maybe make the formula with some extra water or just offer her water and see if she wants it. But just remember some days they don't poop, but then the next day wham. If you're worried call an advice nurse at a hospital or just take her to emergency room, but it's probably fine. Good luck.

Yes, but as always think about what you are eating/feeding the baby. Have you introduced a new food? Oh and make sure you're getting enough water and the baby is not thirsty.
