My LO has been nursing like a champ but really struggles to have bowel movements. She strains, wriggles, grunts and even cries out in pain for about an hour before finally passing her BM. She is not constipated because she has the loose, mustard yellow stool of a breastfed baby.

I hate seeing her suffer like this and wonder if it is normal for her to struggle so much? Is there anything I can do to make it easier on her? She is on zantac for reflux and I give Gripe water when she gets real gassy.

I dropped a tear in the ocean, and whenever they find it Iíll stop loving you, only then. ~Unknown
