my lil man is 3 weeks 4 days old and he always cries like he is in pain when he poos! he has 1 to 2 poos a day and is not constipated they are soft poos. I just wonder if he is getting to much gas on his belly he burps really good after every feeding and always toots so I wouldn't think this would be the problem. I feel so bad because he always cries so hard like it hurts He is a formula fed baby. Other then this he is always a happy baby!!!
Babies that grunt and cry when they poop
If your baby does a lot of grunting when he poops don’t worry. This is normal. Babies sometimes grunt, cry or turn red when they have a bowel movement. This is nothing to worry about. A lot of new parents mistake this grunting for straining and constipation. Once your baby gets used to his bodily functions and how they feel, he won’t be as vocal about having them. - JM article
Megan had a lot of problems pooping when she was about that age. We had her on similac advance then switched her to the sensitive and she was much better. Now our problem is solid foods that she is getting harder stools again. GL!
