Newborn pooping

Mónica • Forever wanting the perfect body, but forever wanting wings.

Is anyone’s else’s baby crying and straining to poop or even pass gas? Is it normal for their face to get red almost 60% of the time? It’s my first child and I don’t really know if it’s normal. Honestly tho it looks like she’s putting a lot of work into it. None of her actual stools look hard tho
