Is she exclusively breastfed? If so even 9 days is not alarming. Wait till the baby poops to see if the still is soft. It shouldn't be hard - the consistency of the poop determines constipation in a breastfed baby , not the frequency. If your baby is formula - fed, these rules don't apply.

Hi Krithika.. Haven't you consulted a doctor yet? Five days aren't alarming but I remember my paediatrician saying more than 5-6 days needs to be shown to a doctor.
