Water in newborns: Plain water is not appropriate for young infants under 6 months. Small sips of water unlikely to change stool pattern. Stool patterns vary depending upon what infant is being fed.

Followup with your baby's doctor if your newborn isn't stooling daily. ...Read more

Use only as needed: Avoid using the suppository frequently.

See your doctor for a treatment plan. ...Read more

Suppository cramping: Most suppositories contain stimulant medications that cause the bowel to contract and cramp. This effect doesn't end just because the child poops, and the cramping can go on for hours. This is likely what you are dealing with. That's why suppositories should really only be a very last resort. ...Read more
