Small child, frequent small bowel movements, gas in stomach, constipation. Treatment?

My one and half month old baby poops a very small quantity (just a drop or two) of stool every 5 mins. It is not diarrhea . Almost always her anus is filled with stool. She generally passes 1 big stool a day. But otherwise stools comes out for every wind movement. She is fussy and tries hard (red faced) to pass wind and stool. This results always a drop comes out from her anus. She is suffering the problem from last 5-6 days. Please advice any quick remedy.

no problem this is normal for baby that during wind they can pass small quantity of stool .
this can not be suspected as constipation because she pass stool atleast once per day.
but if she is passing hard stool you can add small quantity of sugar that will cause loose stool . but did not try frequently
and consult to your pediatrician

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
If your child is breast fed this is usually a normal reaction.
This will be controlled with increasing age.
You can use a probiotic syrup for a few days along with a digestive drop.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing your child a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
