Any body got one to share?
I have DS2 on solids about a 6 weeks now ( he's 7mths)
and all was going well until a week ago.
I caught him straining a few times, and then it got to the point of crying
while trying to go. I have also had top perform mini operations to help him poo, along with gentle tummy massages.
I stopped all solids for 2 days to give his system a break, he's breastfed so I read up on that first and it's supposed to be ok at his age.
In that 2 day space, he had 3 hard to pass poos.
The last one he passed a little blood too
I feel so sorry for him, he's not his usual happy self.
He had no poo yesterday and was in a grouchy mood all day long,
so thinking he was hungry again, I gave him about 5 tables spoons of puree
last night. he was happy, then went to bed very easily.
However, when I went to check on him at 9, he was running a high temp, and from 9-12 he was really unsettled and eventually I had to give him panadol to let him rest.
He still hasn't passed anything today, but he hasn't been on form either.
He's bracing himself every few minutes, could he be trying to hold the poo in after it hurt him so much to go?
Is that even possible?
He's out of sorts and a little warm but not running a temperature.
Now, I think he is having issues with his stomach, and we are going to the doc later this afternoon, but I was wondering if anyone has and tried and tested, but more importantly, successful constipation remedies?
So many things I have read are conflicting, give them apple, no apples, pears, no, no pears etc etc
Any advice from people who have had remedies actually work, would be much appreciated.
Sorry if my post is a little disjointed, I can't put him down today.
