Hi DD is 5 months. Hasn't soiled (but has wet) nappy in almost 48 hrs. She's teething, could this be why or should i be concerned? She is otherwise well. Cheers

I think you may well get the nappy from hell tomorrow - she's been saving it up for you!

Give her some apple - that's always loosened up my two - TMI - sorry smile

See what she's like tomorrow - if nothing happens again, then I would take her to the GP - she may well be a bit bunged up. WOrst case scenario they'll give her a laxative of some kind.

Unlikely though, so panic not smile

Before trying laxatives or GP is baby bf or ff. If ff could be needing more fluid, give extra water as well as milk feeds or very diluted fresh orange juice is good. If weaned give pureed fruit and veg with no protein.

oh heck, I pity the next stinker you get. When my DD saves it up they are awful- full from front to back lol, mind you she is 21 months and they are awful toddler poo but still. yuck.
don't worry though, some babies only go once in a week, others ( like my 8 mo) go 3 or 4 times every day. As long as the tummy isnt distended or tight I wouldn't worry yet. A good tip I picked up was a teaspoon of brown sugar in some warm boiled water. should do the trick, but unless you are worried I'd leave well alone.
