Are you breastfeeding her? If so some breastfed babies can go 14 days without pooping. Usually when they go its a huge mess. You can try spinning her legs like she's riding a bike. Since you are almost to the 14 days I would call the doctor to see what they suggest.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I've been here and saw two specialists and our pediatrician was stumped. The pediatric GI specialist AND my LC both confirmed that "there is no abnormal for breastfed babies" they can go 7 times a day or twice a month. As long as when they do go (for those that go few times) it's soft and a lot, it's not constipation. Breast milk has very little waste and as long as the poop really comes when it comes, the baby is totally fine. Mine went 14 days quite often when she only was nursing. Then we'd get a LOT! We had it checked by lots of specialists before finding the ones that could speak with authority on it.

Your child doesn't shit for 12 days, and rather than take her to a doctor you ask for internet advice? o.O
