    Default How to know if constipated?

    LO goes to the bathroom 2-3 times a day...He grunts, face turns red, and seems to be pushing...His poo is soft to me and the color of what he ate earlier...I was just wondering if he is acting normal or constipated...My mom says my sister and I did that from day one, but of course I was FF and she said our poo was always formed from day 1...I am just confused...He doesn't seem to be in pain or anthing and he will grin sometimes while pushing like it is a game...

    I have IBS so I just don't want him to hurt or anything like I did and do sometimes!

    Yep. Normal.

    Contipation means dry, hard, difficult to pass stools. Grunting or frequency has nothing to do with constipation.

    Here's a couple of more resources:
