    Babies need to poop at least once a day. If she hasn’t moved her bowel in a day, don’t worry as long as she is not sick (with fever) or wetting her diaper five to six times. However, if she seems uncomfortable around her tummy area or has a swollen abdomen, call your pediatrician right away.

    Some babies are given enemas like glycerol and camomile to help them poop. Suzette Arriola-Bautista, M.D., a pediatrician at Cardinal Santos Medical Center in San Juan, assures parents that this is not uncommon, and should not be a cause for much worry. Once they start eating solids, especially vegetables, they will start pooping on their own.
