My 4 month old son is so very constipated for some reason. Every time he tries to have a BM, he screams and cries as if his insides were being ripped out. He's not fully finishing his bottles. This all started today at 2pm. I've tried to put a thermometer up there to ease some pressure, I've tried giving him and ounce of diluted apple juice. I've bought some Karo syrup, but I wanted to wait on that and see how he's doing tomorrow. If its not better I'm going to take him to the doctor. I know babies get constipated, but is it normal for them to scream and cry like this every time they try to have a BM? Any tips are apprectiated, and anyone who's been through this?Answer Question

I go through this with my 10 month old....he would scream and cry and really stiffen up whenever he tried to push. he gets so stiff that he does gets in a push-up stance and holds himself there! Are you feeding your lo any rice cereal? My dr told me we were feeding him a lot of things that cause constipation and since we've changed his diet hes pooping again....he had to cut back on rice cereal (giving oatmeal instead), bread based products, and fruits that go black when left out like banana, apple, peach, etc. We tried Karo syrup and it didnt seem to help us much either. Good Luck!
