Baby hard time pooping ??

So doctor says its normal that if baby doesn't go for a couple days. But my son has a hard time just going. He gruts, crys, screams until it comes out. He being only brestfeed . Any one else is baby doing this and how have you help relive him? I feel so bad he looks like he in a pain

Are you giving him vitamin D? Check to see if it has iron in it that could be the problem. My doctor recommended polyvisol because it doesn't have iron.

Same with mine- only at night though. Not sure why. I looked up infant massage on YouTube and that has been helping a lot!!

No. The baby is supposed to be taking vitamin D. Unless your doctor didn't recommend it for you. I ebf too and my doctor says that the baby still needs vitamin D so he said to buy some.

My baby is bottle fed formula and breastmilk, she really strains to poo and cores sometimes, this has been for over a week now and she is 3 weeks old - it's uncomfortable to watch, she poos very soft stools every day but is awkward to get out??
