2 Bumps

He cries when he is pooping?

My son for the past 2 days now cries when he is pooping. He hasn't been constipated at all either. The first day he cried like this he had pooped 4 times already that day. Then yesterday was only one time and cried. The poop is very bumpy like so imagine it does hurt but my question is should i get him some prunes? Or just wait this out?

  • You can do the prunes. They won't hurt. Up his water intake too.

  • Have you consider taking him to the pedetrician? maybe it hurts him alot. if he is having hard stools and it hurts maybe you should give him miralax with his water or juice. Thats what the dr will tell you unless they actually check his colon.

  • Increase his water intake today - don't force it, but offer a drink of water every 30 minutes. Also, feed him high-fiber foods like oatmeal and toast. Call your pediatrician first thing on Monday morning if your son has not had a normal (non-painful) poop by then.
