I'm a grandpa of a 2 month old baby and she hasn't pooped in a week. What can we do here? I know from experience babies go every day if not more.

PRUNE JUICE. My grandaughter was EXTREMLY constipated from birth. Ask her doctor about a little prune juice. It really made the difference for my grandaughter.

I had to change formula. I was using Enfamil and that was horrible on my baby's stomach. I switched to Similac and we haven't had any issues.
