A little worried
My son is nearly 9 months old and we have fully dived into solids this past week. I am alittle concerned because since about Thursday I have noticed that my son is having trouble making a bowel movement. I have also just taken my son off of breast milk due to my own medical issues so I am no longer able to breast feed. He has his last breast milk bottle on Friday. Anywas I know when he is pooping and lately he is really struggling and grunting, etc when trying to poop. Also his BM isn't hard per say but its not its usual soft baby poo either. Is this because we are feeding more solids? Is his tummy just adjusting to the new food?
I am just pretty worried. I just moved here about a month ago so I am in the process of looking for a pediatrician. He will be going in a few weeks for his 9 month check up anywas.
I am just concerned because he will struggle, grunt, and bear down for several minutes trying to poo and nothing happens. I feel so bad watching him struggle.
