Infant, loud cries while passing urine and motion, unable to suck milk. Serious?

HI, my baby boy is 96hrs old (4 days). 1 he had 12.1 bilirubin level when he was 72hrs. 2 he cries very loudly when he tries to pass motion and urine (dark warm yellow) , as it is very hard, its color is still dark green. 3 he is unable to suck milk directly from his mother s breast . initially in the hospital they gave formula (top feed), now we r trying to pump milk from the breast and feed him, he is trying to latch on but unable to suck fully as the nipple are little hard.

Pediatrician 's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I request you to send me further details to answer your question better. Lot of details are required to answer a question like this.

1. What is the birth weight of your baby.......... serum bilirubin can be commented upon basing on birth weight among other factors........ was your baby term or premature.

2. Babies cry a lot before and after passing urine and stool. One explanation i can give is they cannot release the bladder sphincter when the bladder is full as we do. So the bladder get over distended and causes pain. Once they start crying the bladder sphincter gets released and they pass urine. They again start crying because they are wet.

3. Why was a formula given in the first instance............ We are supposed to start breast feeding immediately after birth.................. Please reply with details so that i can help you better
