My one week old daughter has not had a bowel movement since yesterday afternoon. Yesterday, though, she had so many dirty diapers it wasn't even funny. She is fed br___tmilk and Similac formula. I called the doctor's office and the nurse pract_tioner told me to mix half a cup of apple juice with half a cup of water. She still hasn't pooped and she drank about 3 ounces of it. What do I do?

Gosh - I would think apple juice would give her gas. I used prune juice but it didn't seem to work either. Is she grunting and turning all red? If she is then she probably is constipated. I know this is gross but when my son was constipated my doctor told me to take his temp with the rectal thermometer and voila! he pushed it right out with a load of poop!
