Re: Painful bowel movements
Is there a particular time of day when your baby seems especially uncomfortable? And are you sure her discomfort is related to pooping? I mean, it is certainly possible that her tummy upsets her- remember, she's really only been using her digestive system for about 4 weeks, and babies have to get used to the strange new sensations of pooping and passing gas. But it's also possible that this is something else, like acid reflux.
Anyway, things that always soothed my girls when they were uncomfortable-
- warm bath
- trip outside
- being worn in a sling
- being rocked in a rocker or swing
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
