8 weeks child on breastfeed, getting white and yellow stringy bowel movements. Feels in pain. Is it normal? Worrisome

I have an 8 week old baby girl who Im breastfeeding , who seems to always be in pain when she s about to make a bowel movement , she s consistently cranky and usually crying a majority of the time she s awake. Just recently she had a bowel movement that was yellow consistency with white stingy things. She seems to spit up just about all the milk she takes down on a regular basis. Is this normal? Is there anything I need to do, as far as my diet is concerned?

hi miyagi,ur kid is perfectly normal. infants will strain during bowel and bladder movement till 1 yr of age.they will be cranky as they need more cuddling and attention seeking during growing yrs.regarding milk spitting just make sure u r feeding her in correct position and burp her after each feed before putting her to lying position.there is nothing in ur diet that is related to above problems
