5 Signs Your Baby Might Be Constipated

Your baby looks like they are straining and is making noises while passing stool, but are they constipated? Here are five signs that your baby might be constipated:

 

1. Frequency.

Babies from birth to 4 months of age poop about 3 to 4 times a day.

2. Stool is hard.

If the stool is small and pebble shaped there is a good chance baby is constipated.

3. Blood in stool.

If there are bright red streaks of blood in the stool that could be from hard stools stretching the anal walls and causing small tears.

4. Refusing to eat.

If baby is backed up, they might lose their appetite.

5. Stomach pain.

Baby’s stomach is hard and tender to the touch.
