    Default Newborn screams before each poo - normal or not?

    Try cutting out all dairy and soy. Many babies that are intolerant to cows milk protein are also intolerant to soy protein. I couldnt have dairy or soy or DD would have bad wind pain and was very chucky.

    Sorry op to go off topic, but how did you go about cutting our dairy AND soy, Cleo? I have removed dairy but something is still not quite right, and I'm trying to eliminate all soy, but it is in traces in everything! Did you eliminate all traces of soy in your diet, or just the really obvious sources od soy?

    Tia!

    Lactose intolerance is very different to allergic to lactose. OP pls get bub's poo tested for an intolerance before you stress out. Lots of bubs make noise when they poo and babies are supposed to poo during or just after a feed. the feeding/sucking mechanism encourages the digestive tract to move stuff through.

    Also if you do decide to cut out dairy and soy - you will need 2-3 wks before it becomes apparent.

Interesting post about the tucking up of legs during screaming which assists the movement. Some babies though, also stretch out during screaming (ours did), and will tuck up legs when belly is hurting. If it were me, I'd follow the belly massage and dietary advice and check in with nurse, doc in a fortnight-month if it doesnt improve. Do you have a good relationship with your midwife ~ could call her or health nurse if you are worried. Or the Breastfeeding Helpline, or Nurse-on-call Helpline if it doesn't warrant a trip to the doctor.

    Hope it resolves itself soon, OP.
    Think about it - as adults we have our knees near our chest/waist to poop on a toilet to mimic squatting. We don't lie on our backs legs straight - so neither do bubs.

    My DD was like this and screamed and chucked a lot. Paed took one look at her poo and said she was lactose intolerant. I was BF and she said it would take 2-3 to come out of my breast milk so I put her on Soy formula and never looked back. Paed said classic sign or dairy intolerance is a mucusy or foamy like poo. Sorry i know thats gross! The other thing I did was take her to Chiroprator, they were great and it really helped with her colic and reflux. Hope this helps

    I just cut out the main sources of dairy and soy such as milk, yogurt, cream, cheese, icecream etc. I didn't check labels for traces of soy. My little girl didn't have probs pooing, she had wind pain and reflux so was very chucky. I saw results in a few days and if I did have a cappuccino while out (on milk or soy milk) she would be windy and more spewy after the next breast feed.

    Hope you sort your little one out soon, it's heartbreaking when they are unwell and so sad.

    I completely agree with you. I simply meant not all babies tuck up legs when they scream. Some flatten and stretch when in discomfort, though not while pooping!
    Some stretch and scream, then tuck up legs,often while pushing at their bellies with their hands when in discomfort or if their stomach aches.

    Could it possibly be an oversupply of foremilk issue? I had an oversupply for the first 6-8 weeks and dd would be very vocal when passing wind/bowel motion.

    Thanks for the replies everyone

    I'm pleased to say that he seems to have got over whatever was giving him grief. His poos are now normal consistency and he only occasionally has a grizzle when passing them.

    The interesting thing is that I had a thickshake and an iced coffee the day this all started, whereas I don't often have big milky drinks like that. Perhaps he is intolerant but is ok with smaller amounts?

    Probably. I don't drink milk as such but ingest huge amounts of cheese and yoghurt. I think as humans it does make sense to react to non human milk.
