Babies Constipated?

Recommended Posts

I have three GF babies in a 0.2% salt solution.  Increasing to 0.3% shortly.  But my question is How long after they eat should I see Poop? I havent seen a lot of anything... are they constipated?  One is showing signs of  swimming with is head down tail up.   Going to do the epson salt and green peas today. Newbie here Thanks for the info.
