Expert Tips: Causes of Baby Constipation & How to Relieve It

In this article, Dr. Harvey Karp explores baby constipation, and to do about it. Your baby may be constipated if they have hard or pellet-like poops and grunt/cry when it’s time to poop. Typically, babies poop two to three times per day, or even four to five times per day for some infants. If your baby has not pooped in two to three days, then it’s a good idea to call the doctor. Dr. Karp also provides tips to try at home.
