my baby gal is 11 days old. is it normal that baby did not pass motion for 4 days???
If baby is on breastmilk, you may refer to kellymom :: Breastfeeding and Parenting. There is a guide on the number of wet and soiled diapers to expect. After 2-3 months, some breastfed babiee may absorb all the milk and not poo for several days. My boy's record was 10 days until a HUGE poo was produced.
Day 9 is usually the peak of jaundice and baby needs to produce bright yellowish poo to get rid of jaundice. If concerned, do seek your Paediatrician's advice.

Like what other mums said, if you are fullly breast feeding your baby, its ok for 2 weeks w/o poo.
Just be prepared the next time he / she poo, it is going to be a massive poo.
As long as she is feeding well, is active and not in pain, it's ok. Note down the new frequency in poo poo and when there are changes you can re-access to situation to see if it is constipation or diarrhea.
If her stomach is big, hard and bloated, she could be constipated. Usually babies who're constipated have bad appetite and cries a lot from the pain.
thanks everyone for your advice. my baby gal just poo poo today...
