She's 6.5 weeks old and for the past several days has frequently grunted and screamed and pulled away from me while nursing because she's trying to poop. It's not every time - sometimes it comes out with no apparent problems - but other times she seems to really be in pain.
The poop is normal consistency, so she's not constipated. And from what I'm reading this seems normal, but I was wondering are other babes doing the same thing? Is there anything I can do to make this easier for her? Any idea how long it will last? It's really uncomfortable for me when she pulls off suddenly and without breaking the latch!
