My 15 month old baby was sick with a sore throat a few weeks ago. She tried to eat, but I guess it hurts her, because she was only breastfeeding. When she was better, she refused to eat again. Any way, she's only breastfeeding. My concern is that she hasn't poop for four days. I know that when a baby is BF full time its normal because her body is using all the nutrients, but, its the same in this situation even when she's had some snaks, fruits and water or juice?

If you think she is uncomfortable then give her some 100% apple juice watered down. This is a natural laxative and will help her to go within a few hours.
