This is not normal.Your baby may be constipated becuase she is on the formula as well as being breast fed. However I am concerned about her being so constipated at such a young age. There may be a reason for this as there are certain condtions in babies which need to be excluded especially Hirschsprungs. Please take her to be seen by a paediatrician.
