Help! No poops in 15 days for EBF 7 month old
The last time he pooped was July 3rd. He has seemed really happy, and his tummy doesn't look distended or anything. I have read that some infants have gone a couple of weeks w/o pooping - so I was okay monitoring it for that long. In the meantime we gave him some prune juice to see if that would help - no luck. This past Tuesday after waiting 2 weeks we went into the doc. The first thing she did (not our reg doc because it was a walk in) was "yell" at me for not feeding him food and how horrible it is that I haven't introduced solids. She said BM doesn't have enough calories - do I got pretty upset and told her to look at him. He weighed 5 pounds at birth and is now almost 19 pounds and in the 75th percentile. I told her I would introduce solids when he starts showing interest. We've done bits of squished peas and avocados - and he's just not very interested yet. I told her we were planning on doing solids in the next month or so.
After that whole exchange we got to the issue at hand. She said she would put a glove on and try to get things moving. So she did that, and then told me to get some baby suppositories if what she did doesn't work. Well what she did didn't work, so yesterday we tried the suppository - and that still hasn't worked.
We'll prob be heading back to the doctor today, but I wanted to check with the group to see if anyone else has had a similar experience. Thanks for comments and suggestions.
