Constipated: If you are breast feeding your baby is probably not consmtipated. Breast fed babies can go as long as a week without having a stool. They also do a lot of grunting before having an actual bowel movement.If you are bottle feeding you can add a tsp of dark karo syrup to a four ounce bottle of formula.
