My 2 week old is always grunting

Okay so my 2 week old is always grunting before he has a bowel movement and it seems like hes struggling to get it out but hes not constipated. So why is he grunting so much?

  • just might be a bit harder than he is used to. I say if he is going and it doesn't seem to be painful he is good!! Good luck!! Congrats!!

  • That's what babies do. Their poops are squishy, and it's more work to get them out.

  • Babies can make some pretty interesting noises. My son grunts & growls & sighs. As long as his bm"s are normal I wouldn't worry about it.
