Depends: P.S. All babies tend to strain rather dramatically with stools at some point, probably because their brain is working hard to coordinate their intestinal muscles (which are still weak) and nerves.

You can do this 3x/day (after meals usually works best) and as always, call your OB if you have specific concerns. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
