I have been doing some reading up on this today as Mia is worrying me too,we changed her formula as she was very colicky and she was constipated and had not been for 4 days only passed a tiny hard rabbit dropping and it was clearly upsetting her,anyway we managed to get her to go following some advice from the pharmacist but that was 2 days ago so just for my peace of mind i had a little read up this morning,the thing that i read time and time again was formula fed babies are more prone to constipation however its not uncommon for babies to pass stools just a couple of times a week.
Theres no harm in taking baby to the docs to get checked over though as they will be able to check them over to make sure there are not constipated Smile

You could try giving a little cooled boiled water to help move things along.
