Yep, in some cases, in an emergency, a baby becomes too uncomfortable and has not gone for "too long." You can trim and file your pinky fingernail, wash your hands well, put some KY lubricant on your pinky finger and insert it into her rectum only up to the first knuckle and loosen any bowel you find. Trust me, she will thank you for it. Our GI doctor has done this for our son before and it is TOTALLY NORMAL.
