He's breastfed and still makes a mustard-colored poop in almost every diaper, but it takes a lot of straining, fussing, and leg kicking to get the job done. Thinking it might be gas because he's obviously not constipated, I avoid foods that might cause it - obvious vegetables, red sauces, etc. - but it still seems to be a problem.
About a half an hour after he eats and just before he's about to eat again it starts: stomach rumbling, straining, kicking, passing gas and then the final poop which always calms him down. Mylicon seems to alleviate the problem also, but only after it starts. I'd like to find something that will prevent the problem as it tends to wake him up before he's ready to eat at night.
