Poop like an adult :(

My baby girl screamed out in pain last night. I went in to find poop in her diaper that was hard and round... just like adult poop. Poor baby... I am calling her pediatrician when they open, but am curious if any of you have experienced this?

  • Try mixing a teaspoon of light Karo corn syrup with formula, and Similac Alimentum is the best for working with tummy issues, even if you just use it for a week.

  • Is she on an iron formula, like Enfamil w/iron? If so, iron can constipate...think about those last 9 months with the lovely prenatals! They make a low iron formula as well.

  • They make glycerin suppositories for babies that will soften her stool and soothe her little rectum too. It has the added advantage of being something that works topically and doesn't have to go through her whole system.

  • My son had the same thing the other day.
    He gets constipated pretty easily. He gets little hard rabbit like bowel movements as well. I give him apple juice to help loosen up his bowels and get things moving smoother...lol
    His pediatrician gave us 2 types of laxatives. If you child is really young your pediatrician will probably also give you a liquid laxative as mine did for my son.

  • My daughter is is 4 months now experience this same problem at about 3 months when we switched her formula to soy formula. The dr told us it was constipation and to give a lil prune juice with her water. That did the trick and she loved prune juice. You should call the dr, every dr has a different remedy. Good luck.

  • I am dealing with this right now. I went to my Dr. yesterday and he told me to give my baby Apple Prune juice. Gerber makes the one that I bought. He said to water it down at first so he can get used to it.
    My baby is 6 months.
