Hi. LO is 2w and 3d old. No bowel motion yesterday passing wind well but red in face and crying - looks like she is straining with no results. She is bf but has evening formula and on mw advice i use infacol but worried she is bunged up. Anything I can do as don't like her upset. Thanks

Have you tried gentle tummy massage? Clockwise motion under the belly button. Bicycle motion for the legs too? Hope she is better soon x

Could you give a bottle of expressed bm tonight instead of formula?
Tummy massage is good and bicycle legs like PC said.
Not all babies poo every day (I say this while I can hear B doing a massive one mid bf!).

Try rubbing some cotton wool soaked in warm water around her bum. This can encourage them to go.
