If she's breastfed.... nothing. Just keep nursing her on demand and as long as she's wetting enough (6-8 times/day) she is fine. How long they go between poops is not concerning. It's the consistency of the poop that will tell you if she's having a problem or not. Soft and seedy 'mustard' poop and she's 100% ok.
And Amy is quite right about explosiveness. lol

It's completely normal for breastfed babies to go that long without popping, they can actually go as long as 10 days. Just beware that when she does finally go its going to probably what we referred to in our house as an "explosion of poop".
