    Confused consipation

    Advertisements
    Zachary is has been constipated for 2 days now. He finally pooped a little today but it was soo hard he was screaming. Some of it got stuck when he was trying to get it out and just cried forever. I know there is more in there because he makes the noise like hes trying to push something out. Hes a formula baby because my milk dried up. I've tried to massaging his belly and the leg streches. Anything else that you guys have found works for your baby? Hes too young for juice so prune juice is out.

    I would call his pediatrician honestly if he is indeed constipated. Since he's so young, there's nothing that you can necessarily do without the help/input of his doctor.

    You may need to change his formula. For newborns it is best to ask their doctor rather than try home remedies that haven't been ok'ed.

    One of my friends had this problem, and she took a q-tip with some vaseline on it and would stick it in his butt a bit I'd ask your pedi, but it worked for her! Her son is just now able to poop on his own, at 5 months old.
