Newborn difficulties

The two toughest tasks my newborn son has on any given day are burping and pooping, and I'm not sure which is the hardest.

My first impulse is to say that burping is harder because he can't do it on his own. He only burps with assistance. On the other hand, the burps come easy with that little help from his parents. A belch that trembles trees just floats out.

Pooping is always a strain. He gets no help from us, and he obviously has trouble with it.

When he has gas or a bowel movement, it's about the same. He's tense, he squirms, and it's written all over his face that he's uncomfortable.
