nothing ot worry about

HI Brittany

Its normal for a baby to grunt and even to go red in the face while pooping ;-) Many moms think this is a sign of problems, but not at all, as long as your baby's poops are not hard, there is nothing to worry about.

About the color and consistency, thats also normal and "small amounts" are also normal. Some breastfed babies only poop once every 10 days! This is because breast milk is absorbed into the body so easily.

Hope this helps
