Switching to formula & constipation - how long is too long?!

DD is nearly 4 months and we're in the process of moving to bottles. Up until a few days ago she was still BFing a lot at night but have reduced that down to 4 feeds (2 each boob) and she hasn't done a poo since. It's now Monday and last poo was Friday. Have tried massage but not working and she's clearly uncomfortable.

How long should I want before going to the pharmacy for some kind of laxative? And what do I ask for? Or is there anything else I can try?

This is normal....

a warm bath covering her belly can also help, lifting legs up and moving them around can help too
