My daughter 2 months and 10 days old. But from last five days she did not pass latrine. She feeds at regular interval and passes urine as usual. Bowl movement is good. But she is feeling uneasy because of constipation. Pediatrician suggested that need not to worry if baby do not passes stool for 5-6 days. what should i do?

It is normal for bottle feed babies not to pass stool for 5-6 days breastfeed babies can sometimes go for even 10 days but if you are really worried at her age the only thing you could do is give her a little dilute pear juice which can help lossen stools, make sure she has lots of milk feeds and even cooled boiled water but other then that just have to wait for her to do her bussiness!
