My 12 week old son may be having poop issues. He is 100% breastfed, so his poops are pretty watery. Sometimes they seem mucousy or foamy but what worries me is that he seems to really strain when pooping and in the past couple of days he has been really fussy and last night he cried for hours. I have noticed sometimes he has a little bit of poop in his diaper, as if he tried to poop but couldn't push it out. I've tried pushing his legs up into his chest, doing 'the bicycle etc but that doesn't always work. I've also used a suppository, which helps the best so far bc he pushes it right out and poops but it is not a lot and sometimes frothy... any suggestions? Also, I noticed that when he's pushing, his scrotum turns white, like all the blood has drained out of it... is that normal?
