3 week old constipated
My 3 week old is on enfamil infant and he's been spitting up milk and having a hard time pooping. I gave him a little baby prune juice and that helped but not the next day. Tomorrow I'll take him to the Dr hopefully the Dr can switch his milk to Enfamil ProSobee. My sister said that milk is good for constipation. Is anyone else baby on Enfamil ProSobee?
It is normal for babies this age to appear to struggle when having a bowel movement. As long as the consistency is soft they are not constipated. They just don't know how to coordinate their muscles, for example they will be clamping their butt hole shut while trying to push the poop out. Their face can turn colors and they can really appear to be straining. A gentle tummy massage, bicycling on the leg, and a warm bath can all help.
