Hey guys, so I know I've been MIA a lot lately. It's just been so busy around here with little man and bringing him to work with me every day. My question though is probably for STMs....when is it time to worry/call doctor about constipation in babies?
My baby is EFF, has been for about 2 weeks now, and Friday he was REALLY fussy, like inconsolable. Then Saturday his poop was just a little nugget instead of a full, mushy diaper like usual. I got another nugget Saturday night and he really strained and shrieked when he passed it. Then Sunday night he filled his diaper, but he was still straining and crying a lot (you can tell he's in pain) when he did it. I got another full diaper earlier today, but again he's still straining and crying when he poops and it takes him a long time to get it all out. Part of me feels like he's on the road to working it out since we're getting more than just one little nugget at a time...but the new mom in me is still worried and wondering at what point should I be calling the doctor? There is no blood in his stool, but it is definitely thicker and drier than it was before.
