I'm pretty sure what you guys are going to tell me is that they sedate...

I couldn't say exactly how long it takes per silky to dye them, it seems to me it depends on how hot the water is/how much dye is in the water...
We don't have a microwave so I've always dyed them on the stove top with no problems. It works great the only drawbacks are that it probably takes longer and you just can't get the cool tye-dye effect.
Both of my kids have had issues with constipation, my dd since she was around 9 months old which resulted in her loosing most of her colon function by the time she was 4 (at age 8 she is almost back to normal function). My almost 3yo ds has had a similar issues but with the history of my dd we addressed it much more aggressively and earlier.

When we spoke with her pediatrician about it she was totally unconcerned and spouted off some statistics that I forget now but was reassuring as to my dd's age and the frequency of kids that age still needing diapers/pull ups....
Thanks for such a comprehensive reply Emmeline II! I actually printed it out as a reminder of why we don't need a tetanus vaccine shot at the ER.
I wouldn't have done tetanus shot either (my kids are totally unvaxed). From what I've read in your post and what I've read about what tetanus needs to thrive, it doesn't sound necessary in your dd's situation. Sorry you were hassled-I dread the first time we have to face this.
