I used a liquid glycerin suppository last night with almost zero result (2 small, hard stool expulsions) Can I repeat and when should stool be normal?
Let's define problem: Doctors define constipation as stools less frequently than once every 3-4 days.

As long as she is feeding well, urinating normally and seems comfortable, I would leave well enough alone. Never give a baby under 2 months of age medicine without discussion w doc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
