Poop.........

Alex hasn't pooped in two days going on three. He is miserable, I am miserable. HELP! He is getting plenty of fluid, plenty of fiber.
I vote GI, issues the hardest part of this. I'm tired, and we are supposed to show the house tonight.

You don't know me and I don't know you (well) but I follow your bog every now and then through a friends blog. Anyway, I have a 14 month old and he used to get constipated when he was younger and dark kayro syrup (like what you use for pecan pie and such) does the trick. I put a tablespoon per 4 ounces of fluid (usually milk at that age). It'll work with 12 hours if not sooner, you can do more syrup when you need it, it won't hurt him. Also, any foods starting with "P" helps, prunes, plums, pears, peaches.....

God bless!

Prunes never worked with my little one, but PEARS always did the trick. Try pears or pear juice. Also, the above comment about Karyo syrup is true. (You can use the white as well.) In the hospital they give it to patients who are on too many meds and can't have a stool softner or laxitive.

oh jessica I know how you feel. I am extremely tired today and just feel worn out. Ironically our house is for sale too. No luck yet.. I use the fruit-eze jam with Noah and it works great. along with flax seed. If he gets worse you may have to use a baby laxative to give him some relief for now.. I know it is hard ..

I suggest our old standby, Miralax. Or, if you can get him to take it, magnesium citrate does the job QUICKLY. Poor little guy. He must not feel well either.
