    Default Constipation?

    How do you know if your LO is constipated? My LO is making mad grunting noises and turning red, but in between she is smiling if I distract her. She also had her immunization shots today. Do you think that's why she's making those noises?

    Just a thought... Maybe it is just a fun new noise that she has learned how to make. My DS#2 likes to scream

    How's her poop texture? If she's contipated it should like hard pellets.

    Mami Kathy is right......Also, lots of babies strain and grunt even if they're not constipated. DS #3 would do that, and then he'd have the regular breastmilk poos that are somewhat runny.
