So just on Friday my baby starting straining and crying while taking a poop. I could tell he was in so much pain like he was having a gas pain and then trying to push through it. My boy has pretty good bowel movements. He had one during one of the very early morning feeds on Friday and then once he started straining and doing all this stuf he would have little spots but not big bowel movements. So i thought he was constipated. I called the doctor and took her suggestions. I stimulated the rectal area with a thermometer. Stretched his legs. Rubbed his tummy. Gave him diluted prune juice. Eventually we got a big bowel movement but he was still straining after that , though not as bad as before. And his poop was soft. On Saturday we decided to change the formula because he has always been gassy HAS to burp about 4 or 5 times during each feeding and we figured the gas coupled with the urge to go to the bathroom definitely complicated things. So we went with Similac Sensitive we also got some gripe water. The gripe water seemed to work. Yesterday we was a pretty happy baby.
Then this morning we are back to the same thing. Straining and inconsolable crying. I gave him the gripe water after he ate. He burped and farted. And then i changed him and he had a very poopy diaper.
I called the pedi and I'm going in today because I'm just concerned about why its taking so much for him to poop when it is very soft. It's bugging me out and I'm hoping he's ok. I really seeing him in pain. Even while sleep he'll sometimes tighten his whole body up and yell out and cry for a few because of the Pain. I feel helpless.
Any advice is greatly appreciated because I don't know what to do.
