My breastfeed one month doesn't have any of the classic signs of constipation but has not had a bowel movement in 6 days. She is gassy, dosen't have a temperiture and dosen't seem to be in distress but I'm still very concerned about this. She is having about 10-12 wet diapers a day. What if anything should I do about this? It's the weekend and I haven't been able to catch her pediatrician. Any advice for a new mom would help.View Thread
