    our 1 day old is having trouble going potty. if we watch her she squats and pushes but nothing is coming out. it all looks normal and not swollen. We tried putting baby oil in her bottom but it didn't do anything. she is acting normal but i know in a few days she will be sick. I don't want her to die! Her mamma had been setting all summer and she finally got a baby and i don't want her to loose it!
