Warning: tmi- about poop

Posted by   + Show Post
I seriously feel like I'm doing something wrong. My daughter finally poops today ( after not pooping since Wednesday). It was so hard and huge, she was screaming in pain. I had to help her and actually pull it out. She did bleed a little. The dr told me that if she bleeds I need to give her juice for a week so she has soft stools and let her bottom heal.

This happens about once a month and it breaks my heart. She eats fruits and veggies everyday. You think that would help.

She is formula fed, 11 months old. She was getting all table food, but I went back to baby food because I thought that might help.

Quoting cabrandy03: How old is she again? Is she formula fed?
You could try mixing some prune juice in with her fruit purees.


Quoting AbbeysMom2013: We tried them before, but I may have to look into it again.

Quoting cabrandy03: Maybe get her on a good pro biotic, they make liquid ones for babies.

 Blueberries are the worst. If you're giving her blueberries, stop. I don't know what it is about them, they're a "superfood" after all, but they wreak havoc on babies' digestive tracts.

That's odd. I haven't given her straight blueberries yet. Maybe I should just give her green beans, they go right through her.

Is she getting enough liquids?  I know with Bug when his food increased his milk decreased and we have to watch to make sure he gets enough liquid.

She gets 4 6oz bottles a day. Until she is one that is her main source of nutrition, so I never decreased it. I try to get her to take a sippy cup with water, but she just chews on it.

This happened once this past year to my 3 year old. It is horrible, but they soon forget. It shouldn't happen every month though.

 We had been doing about that and then Bug started spitting up a lot so we decreased the formula.  He is a pretty big eater though and we make sure he gets healthy foods.

He just figured out how to use a straw cup this week and loves it.  Just keep trying.  She'll get there.
