So DS2 hadn't had a stooled diaper in 6 days. I called the pedi yesterday and was told to hang tough and spoke to the pedi again today who told me again, it's normal, but to try a 1/3 of a glycerin suppository. I really didn't want to try that, so I tried warm baths, warm wash cloth on his bum to stimulate, etc. Nothing worked.

I went and got the suppositories and cringed as DH put it up there. Well, it didn't have time to work. About 8 seconds after he put it up there, it came out with well, you know and DS2 had a little relief. We decided we would try again tomorrow.


About 2 hours later however, DS2 was squirming and visibly upset and I daren't hope his diaper was filled, but I checked anyway.


HOLY COW!!!!!


Call Hazmat! That diaper needs to be quarantined! I don't have to explain where the contents went (up, out and all over). You all know. Let's hope he sleeps well tonight.

I jinxed myself. He had an awful night. He fussed until almost 1 AM before he finally went to sleep. I'm exhausted. I don't know what was the problem.

I'm glad he finally pooped. What did your dr say about giving him some watered down juice to help things get going? I would think that would be better than suppositories.

I would have thought so too, but both pedis said there wasn't a reason to give anything orally - because he isn't really constipated, but rather the colon is not engaging in peristalsis because there isn't a significant amount of stool to pass. The idea is that breastmilk is so nutritious, it's easily digested and there isn't much to pass.


Well, I don't believe that. He had a HUGE amount built up and I don't think that's the end of it. However, the Dr. did say that if a baby is constipated, the stool will be hard and pebbly. And I've read that in every piece of literature I've read on the subject, so I do believe that. Well, DS2 had anything but that. It was just like it has always been since birth.


So I don't really know what is going on. We're going to stimulate with a rectal thermometer again this evening to see if we can keep things going, just to be safe.

Christian is breastfed and he was pooping several times a day and now we are down to only once a day. I never heard that about them using all of the breastmilk and not excreting much of it.

I do remember when Jackson was constipated as a baby it was hard and pebbly, not like the normal breastmilk poops.


I hope he keeps pooping regularly for you.

LOL! Too funny. If they get really backed up, you will be surprised at the amount that it will take to actually provide relief. Is he still eating and peeing too?

Still eating and peeing like a champ. Yesterday I didn't get a chance to stimulate with a rectal thermometer. He had a poop diaper all on his own and it was massive! Pleased it's all working!

I have heard babies go through a period where they have to learn the coordination required to push poop out. I wonder if that's what's going on? The article I read said babies will go through a period of getting red in the face, pushing, but not getting anything out, and it can be frustrating but they get the hang of it. Basically they have to learn how to relax the anal sphincter while bearing down, and sometimes they're trying to do one without the other, or they're bearing down without relaxing and can't get it out. The article warned not to use suppositories or help with a thermometer too often or it can train them just to wait for that and not learn how to do it themselves.

Good info Joy. I read something similar. Neither the thermometer or the suppositories are a favorite with us, so I'm not inclined to use them unless the situation is dire.
