How can I tell if my Baby is Constipated?

If you’re concerned that your baby may be constipated, just look at her poop. “The most important factor in determining constipation in an infant is the consistency of her poop,”

Explains Deena Blanchard, MD, a pediatrician with Premier Pediatrics in New York City. “As long as your baby’s poop is soft in consistency and is of one of the normal colors of yellow, orange, green, or brown, she is not constipated. But, if her poop is hard like little pellets, she may be constipated, so you should check in with your pediatrician.”
