1 Bump

The baby has a stuck poop.

It's not as funny as it sounds. It won't come out and she's screaming. I've been bicycling her and trying to help her and nothing. I had DH put her in a warm bath while I posted and am googling She's 18 months old and NOTHING is open today.

  • Im sorry, my dd had a bout with constipation on Easter one yr, its horrible. Continue the bike exercise and the bring the legs up to the chest at the same time move. Walking will help too. Hoping she is feeling better.

  • This is gross, but if you have a thermometer, coat it in vaseline or mineral oil and put it just a little way up her rear. I told you...gross. But it does help get things moving. Sorry she is constipated. Hope she gets better!

  • Hot tea as hot as is comfortable for her to drink it. It should loosen her up in a couple of hours.
