Hi,Thanks for query,
It seems that your baby is having absolute constipation.This shows that there is insufficient nutrition is there.
Give plenty of liquids,
Stop giving Iron drops if you are giving.
You can give mild laxative or pediatric suppository available and you can put after consulting your doctor.
Ok and bye.
