  • If he has started eating normal foods already try giving him a little bit of beans or even some spinach. One thing you can do is put some Vaseline or even just any kind of diaper cream (Vaseline works best IMO) put a good amount around his hole to lube it up, it will help everything come out a easier. You can even take a thermometer (the small end) put a little Vaseline on the tip and slide it in gently (as if you are taking his temperature) and rotate it a little to help loosen him up.
