We started to notice our DD would go when we gave her "air time". We used to put her on the changing table with a prefold cloth diaper under her and she would kick her legs a little and starts going. Now we hold her on a infant potty in the morning and she pees and poops in it. Much easier than sticking things in her anus!

Liz1485:If it's only 2 days I wouldn't worry about it. My LO often goes 2 days without pooping. He rarely goes any more than that. I would ask your pedi's advice before giving juice or anything to help.
I agree... 2 days is normal and ok. My ped doesn't like to * interfere* before its been at least 5 days.
infant massage. clockwise light rubbbing on the tummy. Acupressure points in the feet are also proven to help baby have a bowel movment, look them up, I cannot explain properly how to do them, my mom is a massage therapist and showed me. It truely helped(still does) for my toddler and now for LO.
You may also want to change formulas if you are Formula feeding, sometimes the different brands cause tummy issues.
