This is probably a common/goofy question, but I'm a FTM, so please excuse!
DD is 3 weeks old and seems to struggle with passing gas/having bowel movements. She grunts, moans and balls up for a good while before some of her dirty diapers. I'm BFing and her stools are the typical BF consistency, but she seems like she's in so much pain and just screams like someone's pinching her. This isn't all the time, just periodically (maybe a 30 minute/1 hour episode 1-3 times a day), but she's virtually inconsolable when it does happen. I've tried tummy massages, mylicon, new vitamin supplement (without iron) and gripe water...nothing seems to consistently help.
Any thoughts on what the issue could be? Pediatrician just says it's the result of an immature digestive system, which she'll outgrow. I hate that answer (for her and for me), so I thought I'd ask if anyone has experienced anything similar???
