DD just turned 5 mo old on the 10th. She hasn't started solids yet, and the only thing other than breast milk she's had in her belly is an occasional dose of gas meds or infant Tylenol because I think she's teething & she felt a tad warm. I noticed she hasn't pooped in 3 or 4 days. I'm starting to get concerned. But she hasn't been fussy or acting uncomfortable... she has the most MELLOW, laid-back personality and since birth only cries if she's really tired. Even when hungry she just eats her fist and grunts a little. Recently I HAVE noticed that her cries escalate QUICKLY to full-out SOBBING if I don't get to her RIGHT AWAY when she wants a nap, and if she's hungry she'll cry now too and it also escalates quickly. But for the most part if she's slept and eaten she's the same happy baby I've always had.
Should I give her something to help her poop and if so, what is OK? I expect a MAJOR BLOWOUT any time, now... but it just never comes.
We had blowout, of course, right the middle of my errands today, and boy was it a doozie. Thank you all!!! :D
BTW - those wax things are Glycerine Suppositories. I actually have some from when DD#1 was a baby and I completely forgot about them. Thank you again!!!

Next question overall
Are there any 2 year degrees that you can do completely online?
