I think my baby is constipatied he's going 50+ hours without pooing then I changed his brand of milk I was over the moon as I had 3 bowl movements in less than 24 hours but now it's been 24 hours and feeling sorry for him any advice? Don't want to start adding more stuff to his diet I give him water as much as I can he's only 6 weeks old and want to help my poor little man

My guess is that he is ok.....some babies will grunt and cry when having a bowl movement as it is a new thing for them and they are learning how that all works. I would talk to your doc. about it though. Always nice to get the "everything is ok" from someone who knows babies and knows you.

They aren't so much stools, it's still quite loose and mushy (sorry tmi) I have read that I just know they are uncomfortable for him to pass, I think doctors is next step thank you :)

Does he have hard stools? Most of the time doctors say that as long as they are going by the third day they are fine. Not all babies are going to have a bowl movement every day. Especially formula fed babies as they tend to have less poopy diapers then breastfed babies. I would suggest talking with your doc. He/She will be able to tell you if there is a reason to be concerned and then what to do about it.
