Premature infant born 1 month early due to toxemia.

He strains and cries as in pain with a bowel movement. Sometimes spits up and his tummy gets hard during this espisode. He is breastfed and gaining weight well. My question is has anyones baby experienced this and what should we do? He also has a large outie bellybutton but the doctor said it looked fine.

  • How old is he? The belly button will likely go "in" as his abdominal muscles get stronger.
