Ds is 5 months and had been going every other day since about 6 weeks old, but sometimes he will go 2-3 days without and then go 2-3 times in one day (to make up for lost time I guess :-) What is her typical pattern??? I wouldn't really be concerned at this point...alot of times they get diarrhea with teething from all the saliva so it's good that she hasn't. I wouldn't think that the teething had any relattion to it though. If she seems uncomfortable and still hasn't went in the next couple of days maybe try some glucose water or prune juice (or even prune baby food if she's doing solids already).

Thanks for your quick reply rabbits! She normally goes every other day. Honestly I just realized she hasnt gone because I have been so preoccupied with her teething and was concerned because i have been giving her tylenol for 3 days straight now.

Our dd poops about once every 3-4 days. Once she went as long as a week and our pedi wasn't concerned. The pedi said we should bring her in if she goes longer than 10-14 days.

doctor told me to give her apple juice and it worked a little. i would have thought she was way too young but i guess not...thanks for your replies!

They can start having juice daily (small amounts) at 6 months (our babies are growing up!) Mason's 4 month developmental sheets that he got at the doc also stated that they can have 2 oz. adult prune juice mixed with 2 oz. water for constipation at that young.
