Collin is constipated...help!!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So it's been 3 days, he's miserable, and none of my usual Ickes are working. I've tried massage, adjustments (obviously), and DHA supplements. Nothing is working. Any thoughts?

Is he EBF? Generally EBF babes can't be truly constipated. Also, anything u to 14 days with no poo is normal. Is it possible his discomfort could be from something else?

 

I have had the best luck with anal stimulation to encourage poo, though. Just a little massage on the anus with a warm wet wash cloth or cloth wipe.
