Is it normal for newborns to strain while pooping?

Clover was going while at the pediatricians office so I asked if that was normal. I was told yes but I certainly am thinking otherwise, I mean the girl turns BRIGHT red and sounds like she's in pain.Chat Icon

Is she formula fed? It is pretty normal for formula fed babies. I have a picture, I have to find it Chat Icon

I don't think my ds ever strained to do #2. But then again, i still can't tell when he is going in general!

i'm pretty sure it's normal for newborns to get all red and look like they're straining to poop. DS is BF and has no problems getting the poop out, but still gets extremely red in the face and makes straining noises. doc told me it was fine. Chat Icon

I BF and YES I always know when he is going to poop because he turns bright red and starts twisting around like crazy! My Dr. also told me it was nothing to worry about.
