  • This is VERY common in newborns. As long as he doesn't appear uncomfortable or straining, you don't have to worry. If so, there's a few gentle techniques like bicycling his legs and warm baths that might help.

    Avoid anything like suppositories at this young age. If you have concerns, contact your pedi.

  • As long as your little one is having wet diapers than they do not tend to worry. Of course keep an eye on it.

  • Very common especially in breastfed babies. As long as LO is having wet 6-8 wet diapers a day and goes in the next couple days and isn't showing discomfort then you should be fine.
