Why does your baby seems to grunt and strain all day
Usually when a baby is grunting and straining they probably are working on a bowel movement or they have gas. To help your baby you can rub their belly in a circular motion, bicycle their legs, put them in a warm bath or burp them. Newborns often seem to spend a long time trying to poop before they poop. This is normal and they are just learning how their body works and that to do with their muscles.
