  • yes, formula feed babies are more likely.
    You never want to see a hard poop in a baby. :( Poor thing

  • She seems to have trouble pooping, but it's not constipation. She gets fussy. Any suggestions?

  • Sounds like a formula fed baby? Her intestines will strengthen and she will get use to pooping. She may be gassy. One of my sons has always been gassy and it makes him crabby (he is now 3). I think he is just more sensitive to things. You can always 'bicycle' her legs.

  • My son came home like that he was really gassy and the his poop was sticky looking . He was just fine it took him a while to learn to get the poop out we had to "bicycle"his legs and it works. Also in can be the formula , we switched to a different brand and he wasn't as gassy anymore . Maybe you could try that GL
