Constipated baby: when to see a doctor?

It is imperative to consult a doctor when the baby presents :

  • Less than two stools a week.
  • Vomiting associated with constipation. This can be a sign of bowel obstruction.
  • A loss of weight.
  • Psychomotor development disorders.
  • Abdominal pain to defecation or palpating her belly.

And, in any case when the mother is too worried. It is better to have a reassured and calm mother, than an anxious mother, watching for her baby's stool. This is a real improvement factor for the baby!

The doctor consulted will have recourse to additional examinations only in the case where he suspects a specific disease.
