Our baby has just turned 1 month yesterday, for the last 2 weeks he has been having problems pooping, he grunts and grunts and lifts legs and gets very upset but nothing comes out, he done it while i was changing him the other day and i noticed he was clenching his bum cheeks while doing it. We have been having to use suppositories the last 3 days now to be able to help him go, it is like once that is used he has no choice but for it to come out. And now the last 2 nights he just wont sleep, just cries and cries, we can see he is soooooo tired but he just wont sleep, and gets more upset when he is lifting legs and grunting, he doesn't pass nowhere near as much gas as he used to and his tummy gets so hard.
My DH and i are now at our wits end, we know its not constipation because when the suppository is used he fills the nappy with a very wet consistency poop, yesterday we gave him one in morning and one in arvo the one in the afternoon was quiet a sticky poop. Due to lack of milk he gets one Breast Milk bottle during the day that i express for him and the rest is formula, the doctor has already had us change his formula a number of times but just seems to make things worse.
