Probably not: How often a baby poops changes in the first few months of life. At first they go frequently almost every time they eat and then it decreases to 1 to 4 times per day in the first year. If she is on formula or you have recently switched this may cause less pooping Look for signs that she is straining to go and also at her belly to see if it looks bloated. If she were to start vomiting see a doctor ...Read more

What milk is she taking? Has there been any change? Any fever. Baby's don't always show obvious signs of illness, but a change in eating or sleeping should be checked out. ...Read more
