It seems that my nearly 11M DS is constantly constipated. Last week was a fantastic poop week, he went everyday, even if it was in the bath! Now it has been yet again 4 days since his last poop. Sometimes I think he is too busy to poop, he won't sit still long enough to do it. He has access all day to water in a sippy cup, we try to feed him only stuff with fibre, so wholemeal toast, lots of fruit and veggies, prunes and pears. Not that he ever eats much.
Getting him to eat has been such a struggle and then when he does he dosn't poop for a week.

Still no poo. The chemist gave me some lactyl? I can't get him to even swallow it. The chemist also said it will dehydrate him. aahhh so confused with what to do.

Have you tried a bit of watered down pear or prune juice? Or some warm brown sugar water?
I had to use a pessary on my ds when he was 4 months old after 10 days with no poo, he was severely constipated and the pessary worked wonders.
Perhaps bub has lazy bowel.

We have a doctors appointment for tomorrow, did it hurt your DS having the pessuary put in? I have been trying him on prune juice, I just can't get him to swallow much. I just want him to have a poo!

You might have tried this but buy some pear juice (in the tin) from the shop honestly it's sooo yummy n does the trick!
It's pretty much the same as prune juice but taste nice :-)

Do you give him weetbix? It can cause constipation in babies, a friend of mine ended up having to spend a couple of days in hospital with her baby son because he was quite badly constipated and after seeing a dietician they worked out it was the weetbix. Our oldest DD couldn't eat weetbix until she was about 2 years old as it would constipate her.
Like All Smiles said pear juice works really well - but it does have to be the cloudy one in the tin, not the clear one in the babyfood section. Or stewed pears - grate the skin and mix it in too.

Yay yesterday arvo he managed to get a hard one out, then this morning was a nice soft one that DH said he had no trouble getting out. Relief!
I'm going to keep him on the prune juice today, and I will also get some pear juice when we walk down to the shops.
I had heard from the CHN that weetbix was a clogger. I think it might have been either the wholemeal toast or the little bit of cheese he gets. So I will try to steer clear of those for a bit. Its hard though because he is such a skinny kid and cheese was actually something he ate!
