Breastfeeding and baby is constipated
my son did this. I realized that if I noticed him straining I could lay down with my knees up and then place him sitting against my knees. For some reason he loved to poop this way. Even now he only poops standing up. He will cry if I am holding him to stand up so he can poop.
If her poop is watery either shes having another issue or could have some sort of compaction that's stuck in there too that's causing her discomfort. I would try to get her in as soon as you can to rule out the latter.
How old is she? Mine seemed to have the most discomfort at around 4 months.
Both of my little ones would strain and cry to poop, which seemed unusual given that when it finally happened it was just regular runny baby poop. Baby poop is often yellowish and somewhat runny, but if its watery then she should probably be seen by her ped to ensure there isn;t something else going on. Good luck.
Suppositories? Breastfed babies can go days without pooping, which is completely normal. What does her poop look like?
Some of the links here might provide some guidance as to whether anything is wrong, but honestly, straining and crying out just to have a runny poop is very similar to what my babes did....when they're really new babies are still figuring out how to poop.
yeah at two weeks that sounds pretty normal. Its shocking for them you know. For 9 months they never had to poop and all of a sudden this new experience. My son did the same thing and got over it I think around 6 weeks. I think suppositories are a little extreme especially for a baby so small.
