Tummy troubles with formula?

Anonymous

My LO is 3 and half weeks old and we just transitioned him to full formula from being full breast milk since he was born. With breast milk, he pooped almost every single feeding but now with formula he poops maybe once a day. During feedings though he is constantly pushing which frustrates him because nothing comes out. Is this normal? When he does poop it’s not hard. Is this his tummy getting used to the formula?

    My baby did the same exact thing around that time. It ended up being infant dyschezia and is common at that age. Ours lasted about a month then she went back to pooping every feed. Very frustrating because you can’t really help just wait it out.
