my baby was born premature weighing in at 4 pounds and 10oz he had to remain in the hospital till he reached 5 pounds hes home now but he seems to be constipated and constantly pushing please help i dont know what to do
my baby was 6 weeks prem (now 7 wks old) and he gets a bit constipated...I was told to add a bit of extra water if bottle fed.
Also I have read that preemie babies grunt alot and it is normal...so your baby may not be constipated after all.
If they Are constipated they would probably cry rather than grunt
hope this helps
