Baby constipation questions are so common that they have their own section here.

One specific issue that many parents ask about is whether it is normal for their breastfed baby to have very irregular bowel movements. The answer to that question is YES! A fully breastfed baby older than 2 months can have more than 10 days between their dirty diapers and it is still completely normal.

Another common question is whether it is normal for a baby to strain and be gassy. Again, yes! For newborn babies, it can take a few months before the digestive system has matured and straining, grunting and wriggling are normal and necessary. You can help your infant with some baby massage. BUT your baby should not be constipated. Read about the signs of constipation here.
