Paediatrician

Your baby is only 2 weeks old and is not passing any stools. Is she being breast fed or bottle fed?She should be seen by a paediatrician or at a paediatric clinic really as soon as possible as she may have a condition called Hirschsprung's disease.Here there is a problem with the nerve supply to the last part of the intestine in affected babies and the baby has great difficulty in passing any stool.
