Breastfeeding?

I'm pretty sure my 13 day old boy is constipated... I am breastfeeding but I had to take a break for 2 days for my nipples to heal after some bad latching... He had formula but I still expressed to keep my milk supply up. Have I effected my milk supply? Is he just constipated? He's crying and straining, hasn't passed stool in a day and a half. He's weeing plenty so he's not dehydrated

    Excessive constipation is common with troll babies.

    Some babies get constipated on formula. 

    But a day isn't really cause for concern as long as he's wetting diapers.  Keep nursing often and things should resolve themselves.
