Constipation in Infants and Toddlers:

That sight of an empty bowl of food once completely fed filling the little tummies - One of the best joys for any mother of an infant or a toddler I must say. While a slight mismatch in diet or sometimes change of food could head to an entirely different direction of these delightful times sometimes leading to constipation


What is Constipation and how does this happen?

As we know Constipation is a situation where we are unable to pass stools easily due to uncomfortable bowel movement. This usually happens when there is a change in diet and a pattern of food that does not suit your system When this situation is seen among infants or toddlers it can be a cause of challenge and worry among parents. However most often the baby may not really be constipated too.

Their growing systems may not have even developed a routine for pooping yet. In fact some babies do not adapt to a bowel movement pattern for a while. The bowel movement pattern in an infant can change due to the alterations in diet, like switching from breast milk to formula, starting solid foods, or drinking less formula /milk than usual. In this process If your baby’s stool (poop) is not soft or easily passed, then they may be constipated.

What are signs of Constipation:

• When the baby passes lesser stools than their usual pattern

• Applying more pressure than normal to have a bowel movement

• Passing hard stools or a change in the volume and type of stool being passed

• Sensing a bloated belly or swollen due to gas

• Suffer painful stomach/colic cramps

• Extremely Irritable due to irregular bowel patterns
