Unless she is straining and/or in pain you can give it another day. She should go by then, however if you are worried you can give her 1oz apple juice with 1oz water in a bottle or you can insert a qtip or thermometer with vaseline into her rectum and gently swirl around.
When she does go, if it is thick like clay or has blood in it, call the dr.
Babies can go up to 7 days without pooping. I've noticed that everytime my DD goes through a growth spurt, she doesn't poop for 4 or 5 days. I wouldn't get worried at this point. But obviously if it lasts for 6 or 7 days, I would check with your doctor.

my LO didn't go for a day or two and today when he did it was clay like grayish but also a lil bit was formula n brown like what I'm used to. Why call dr if its clay like? Should I call or wait till next poo to see what it looks like?
greeneyedjess:How old is your LO? FF or EBF? My DS is EBF and only goes once every 7-10 days. His pedi is perfectly okay with it. When he goes, it's soft and usually fills his diaper-he went yesterday and it ran down to his knee!
Not sure if your asking me on this one or not since the other lady said hers was 11weeks I believe.
My son is 4 weeks tomorrow. The clay like poo was soft it was just ..clay like. I think hes fine, but I just thought Id ask since PP mentioned it. :)
And if you where talking to the other lady.. sorry!!
Lo went over 48 hours last week (9 weeks old). Like others mentioned you can give the apple or pear juice, 1 ounce for each month of age. They also recommended soaking his bottom in wam bath water to relax the rectum.
