Please help I am sick of every conversation in my house revolving around poo and whether DS2 has done one or not yet lol
Hi I hope you dont mind me making comments, but I was told that can happen to breastfed babies. But I would be going to the doctor for peace of mind and to find out what is happening. It may not be anything but at least you will know. Thats what I would do anyway. Good luck let us know how you go.
Thanks no I don't mind at all. He has never been consitpated before now so I think its not the breastmilk but because I started him on solids a couple of weeks ago. He was usually pretty regular, every couple of days at least before.
are you using brown sugar? A lady at mum's group told me she used brown sugar and water and it worked. Another has also given her son a teaspoon (or was it a tablespoon??) of fresh orange juice and that cleared him out.
I really hope your son gets home relief soon.
My son went 7 days from memory and his farts were disgusting. He was also pooping pebbles. Coloxyl didn't work for him either.
If he's passing lots of wind then it may be on it's way lol. Very normal for BF bubs to have odd poo routines...what kind of solids are you giving? Just remember that at 5 months bubs only need a tiny teaspoon once or twice a day, his main source of food should still be milk smile I hope he goes soon though, I don't envy you that nappy change lol....a friend's bub used to only poo once a fortnight, and when he went, it came out the sleeves and the neck of his clothes every time unsure
ETA that I wouldn't give oj personally, but maybe a tiny bit of very watered down apple juice may be worth a try??
