My son is almost 12 months old and pooping has always been a bit of an ordeal for him. He was strictly breastfed for the first 6 months of his life and even then would cry when he pooped and once went 3 weeks without going. So now I've introduced solids and every time he goes he cries like he's in agony and I'm just not sure what to think. Is it normal to cry every time? Is this just him? It feels like that's a dumb question because everytime I see this happen I feel awful for him so surely it can't be good. He strains a lot when going and sometimes pushes so hard he turns red, and something doesn't always come out. I'm trying to be good about still nursing and also offering him water through out the day, which he will drink no problem. I've cut out all dairy except yogurt because of all the live cultures and am also cutting out grains on top of that. What else could it be but just his body figuring it out?? Anyone else gone through this???
