Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
You have not mentioned age of your child..
If child is active and taking feeds normally there is nothing to worry if she does not pass stools for 2 days.
But i am concerned about her not passing adequate urine.
Give her glucose water 2 to 3 times a day and monitor her urine output.
If symptoms persist get her evaluated by pediatrician.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
