Help with bowel movement

My daughter Victoria is only a week old and is not able to have a bowel movement on her own any suggestions because we have tried everything. We have changed her formula and also gave her a laxative which only works at first and then she is hurting again in a couple of days not sure what to do any more.

    Have you tried giving her about an ounce of water with a couple drops of prune juice

      I use to do a q tip with Vaseline for my son when he was an infant. No issues with Elianna since she's breastfed

      Yes, I had to change my son's from low lactose to complete soy because he was getting blocked. He is still lactose intolerant, but I know some outgrow it. I am glad she is feeling better. It is difficult for them because they do not have any stomach muscles developed when they are born.
