Has anyone put there had to deal with constipation in their newborn?? My baby Sophia hasn't had a poo in the past 3 days and has become really agitated and you can see that she is trying to push something out i.e. she is straining and her face is turning bright red!
We have tried massaging her belly, introducing water inbetween feeds, moving her legs around in a cycling motion and the other half read up that trying to stimulate baby's anus with a cotton bud with Vaseline on it (he did this last night and he hated it and felt really bad although she didn't seem to care).
She still hasn't had a poo and I want to see if there is anything else we can try before going to an emergency out of hours doctor! I can't watch her struggling anymore as its heart breaking! Any help would be great!
