difficultly sleeping

by carolann

For the past two days my newborn has had difficultly sleeping she normally sleeps threw the night and naps great during the day but she has been trying to pass gas and fusses so much she wakes up crying and when she cries she poops and little and she pushes so hard she turns red and gets super angry. She burps a lot too. I haven't changed anything with my food nothing new. I hope these gas drops her doctor suggested work :(

Difficulty sleeping
by: Zelda Behr

It is quite normal for babies to push, go red in the face and make noises while passing stool.

The small amount of poop is also normal as breast milk is easily digested some babies have one poop in 10 days others have one poop after each feed or more.

It sounds like your little one has some gas which is normal at her age.

Here are a few thing you can do to relieve the pain...

-Burp baby regularly during feeds.
-Swaddle her in a swaddle blanket.
-Give baby a tummy massage to help pass the gas.
-A warm bath also helps.
-Carry her in a baby sling.
