we found a pretty big rectal fissure in my 2 week olds anus on the inside. my question is how do i help it heal? moisturize?
also, does anyone know what would cause this in such a young baby? he is definitely not constipated as he has very watery stools (hes only breastfed) and he has a bowel movement after every feeding.
im trying to connect all the dots here, it just doesnt make any sense from what ive read about other cause of fissure such as constipation.
our midwife did say that his sphincter was very very tight. perhaps that is the cause? i cant remember what she said as im lacking some sleep;)
