It is most unusual for a fully breast fed baby to be constipated from birth. Did you give your baby formula feeds as well while you were breast feeding her? Try her on a casein-rich formula such as Lactogen 2 as her formula now. It will also help her to give her one bottle of diluted fruit juice a day.
