Now everyone's gonna say "Well no shit sherlock", but this time its different. I was changing a pee diaper of hers and in the midst of doing so she started to poop. She started to grunt and turned a deep red as she pushed it out and then she began crying, like extremely loud. It was taking a little long for it to all come out and the whole time she was grunting while crying as she was pushing it. When I cleaned it up with the wipes it felt hard, still a little mushy but still too hard in my opinion. She had been having gas issues not too long ago, and they seemed to go away but now this? I really hate seeing her being in pain. The past two weeks have been a very difficult time for her, it seems like there is always something new bugging her.
She's likely a bit constipated.
Is she formula or breastfed and is she taking additional vitamins?
If she's formula fed, I'd probably mix a bit of pear or prune juice into her bottle. 1/2 to 1oz of juice and the rest formula.
I agree she is probably constipated although she's only a month so I wouldn't give her anything without checking with your pediatrician first.
