E has never been a normal poop'er since birth...sometimes going 8-9 days before we have to step in and help! We've had to give him suppositories 3 separate times (under the advice of our holistic ped). He definitely does not tolerate oatmeal, rice or wheat right now. They all make him have super dry poo and he gets super constipated and ends up in pain when he passes those poos. :( Last time, it made him bleed!
Anyway, what's normal once they start to eat solids?
E is eating regular food that I either cut up or he mashes between his gums. Foods like sweet potato, chicken breast, turkey breast, pees, carrots, broccoli, occasional banana, avocado, lots of blueberries, strawberries, egg yolks...simple foods that I'm already cooking for everyone else! I just bought some baby food because it seems even without grains, his poo is still firm...like modeling clay firm (good news is he poops every day or two now that he's eating solids)! Maybe the extra water in the baby food will soften his poo. He likes to sip on water but never gets a lot of it. It just dribbles out of his mouth. Still nursing every 2 hours allll 24 hours of the day! What gives!?
I tried taking out eggs, wheat and dairy from my diet for a few weeks and nothing changed. I'm starting to think he might have some digestive disorder or something!
