Jyotsna Nitika stools, March 31st , 2017. Infants are least likely to become constipated, as they are mostly breastfed or formula fed. Breast milk is easily digested by babies, thereby resulting in soft stools. Same can be said about babies, who are fed on iron-based baby formula.

In that case, you should check the consistency of the stool. If your baby has soft stools, then you have nothing to worry about, no matter even if your baby groans while passing stool.
