A. Constipation is quite common in babys less than 1yrs of age
No need to worry for that
Give tummy times frequently in a day time
Feed ur baby as per demand
Burp properly after each and every feed for at least 10 min or till baby take 4 burp.
Keep a watch on urine output
Baby should pass minimum urine 6-8 times per day
If baby is feeling discomfort or crying exessively then
Need to do rectal stimulation, apply some drops of oil over rectal area
It will help.
If it doesn't work then
Need rectal enema, for which u need to visit ur nearest pediatrician once.
