My baby was born at 33weeks, he is presently 38weeks now we re home now, started formula feeding him cos my breast wouldn't flow. My problem is now he cries a lot when even he trys to poo, I give him lots of water, n I ve started making its food lighter, yet its no beta. Have taken him to my Dr he said its normal but he cries alot, too much infact. What can I do to help him. Pls help.

Some formula's do constipate babies. I would try changing his formula first. It's also not good to be giving water to such a young baby, it can be dangerous. You should also make formula according to the instructions, not watering it down.
This happened with my 1st child and then I found a formula that was better.

i would take him to specialist if you feel his peds doc isn't trying to figure out what the issue is . My son cried a lot also ans never slept more than 2 hrs at a time. i choose to change his formula and it helped.
