of course some degree of contraction is required to empty the bowel. But if the stool is soft you don't have to push as hard. I recommend you consume a couple tablespoons of high quality oil every day, like coconut or olive oil. Make sure it's organic and extra virgin.

Take a look at this website:

It has one of the best articles I have ever read regarding constipation

Try to relax before going, take deep breaths. Give the squat position a try, when ready, put your feet up on a stool, the bend forward a bit so your armpits touch your knees. This really helps me empty.

Just wanted to pass along to you that the infant risk center has an app where you can look up the safety of medication while breastfeeding on Apple phones. It's called Mommymeds. You can also call their helpline for free about any medication at: (806)-352-2519

Here is their website:
