My Baby girl is 2 months old and she has been straining and grunting a lot from the last 5 weeks :( she is exclusively on breastfeed .I have seen our doctor many times he gave her some digestive enzymes but it didnot give any relief to her... i am little worried as its my first baby!

her stool is soft and she passes it easily once in a day but i think she has trouble with passing gas.

Breastfed babies shouldn't be straining to empty their bowels. Their stools should be quite soft. I would be getting a second opinion.
