My Newborn Won T Poop
2 yr old refuses to poop. Recently potty trained, won't poop in potty, his pants, nothing. Holds it so long it hurts when he does go. What do I do?
Toilet training: Oops, your toddler appears stressed-out! the best thing to do is to leave him alone at this point - no negative comments, reprimands despite pant soiling, coercion, urgings nor discussions about his pooping. Shower him with praises, reassurances and positive reinforcements and/or give rewards if/when he defecates in the toilet. Continue to provide increased fiber and fluid intake. Live like usual. ...Read more

Baby pushes poop out: If a baby is eating, behaving, and growing fine... But has loose poops that can hit a target 18 inches away, he may be normal, especially if breastfed.

My breastfeeding 5 month baby constipated past 3 days and struggles, cries to pass poo but he couldn't still. Cries out while straining. Wat can I do?
Constipation in: breast fed babies is uncommon but can occur transiently after introduction of new foods.

Squirm: Maybe you are gripping too tight? Or maybe the baby is just learning to gain dexterity and simply is discovering its own body and how it works so it does it by squirming. Unless it is really abnormal and dangerous, then it is nothing to worry about. They do this until they can crawl. Just like they cry and scream until they can talk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I know this is gonna sound kinda weird, but why does my son grab his pee pee when i change him or when hes batheing? Hes almost two. When will he stop
Boys: What you describe is perfectly normal for boys your son's age. It is unlikely that this is a sign of any medical problem. Many mothers of boys have expressed this concern to me over the past twenty years. In a sense, he has discovered a readily available new toy. As he matures to pre-school age it may be necessary to discourage him from "touching his privates" in the presence of others. ...Read more

Air: It very well may be the position of the baby is getting more air when you breast feed her distending her stomach and causing her to vomit. Different positioning and more frequent burping are indicated. ...Read more
Satisfaction: Your baby is so happy, warm and full of milk; this is their way of showing satisfaction.

My 5wk old baby doesnt poop all day but pass gas often n kinda uncomfortable, Im mix feeding but recently more on breastfeeding.. Shud i worry? Help
This sounds fine: This sounds fine. Its not unusual for a breastfed baby to have only once daily stool. As you increase nursing you may find that baby stools less often. Gas is normal in babies as long as he is not in persistent pain or having a distended abdomen. Enjoy your baby! Hope this helps! ...Read more
Separation Anxiety: When a baby is 7 to 12 months old, a very important stage in development occurs called "object permanence". What this means is now your baby can remember and recreate images in her mind. She knows you exist even if she does not see you. But when we leave, and since they do not have a sense of time, it is stressful for them as they do not understand we will come back, causing separation anxiety. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Why does my 13 week old baby seem to cry just to be picked up? Happens when fed, nappy changed. Crying stops almost soon as picked up.
Crying baby: Baby is preverbal but she can communicate her needs quite well even at 13 weeks young. She crys and you pick her up and she stops. That sounds to me like you understood exactly what she was trying to communicate to you. Sounds like you are off to a great start. Keep it up! ...Read more
