Newborn Bowel Movement Concern
(Virginia Beach, VA)
I have newborn bowel movement concern. My son has not have a bowel movement in over 36 hours but he pees almost every hour. Is this a real problem? He's 10 days old.
He hasn't had this problem before. In fact, he seemed to have bowel movement every time he got fed. He's fed with both breast milk and formula (to supplement the low supply).
This lack of bowel movement started when we changed his formula to soy based (thought this would helped with his gas). We changed his formula back to milk based (Advance Similac).
In the past 8 hours, he's been on breast milk exclusively (at the breasts and pumped milk). He's being fed every 1.5 to 2 hours and takes 1 to 2 ounces each time.
He seems to groan, grunt, and strain every now and then as if he's trying to "go". Is he constipating? Any help or suggestions?
