He did have some probiotics toward the beginning, even the good refrigerated kind, but we ran out of them earlier this week.
I've been severely (and uncharacteristically
) restricting his diet because I just can't take the pooping, but it doesn't seem to be helping much.
I guess I'm just gonna have to dig up some cash and take him to the health food store tomorrow for some more probiotics.
In better news, I found BeanBean a pair of shoes today!! He's been complaining that his shoes are too tight, taking them off every time we get into the car ("they were too uncomfortable, I had to...") and fighting going out just because his shoes hurt to walk in. I checked him out, and his feet haven't gotten any longer (he's still measuring just shy of an 8) but they have gotten *wider* since he last got shoes. Today we went to the Stride Rite outlet; I found out that they no longer carry 2XW and 3XW at all, there's only W and XW, and the XW was only available in two boy's styles (no girl's styles at all
: ). We tried all of the boy's shoes on that we could find, and even going up to a 10 XW they were too narrow; any longer and he couldn't walk in them at all.
After about an hour of sifting, he threw a fit and decided that he only liked the girl's sneakers with the pink butterflies and flowers on them. I told him that I'd be more than willing to buy him pink shoes if they *fit*, but of course none of them did. He was heartbroken when we left.
Anyway, I was driving around the outlets and decided to pop into the Secret Sneaker outlet. I was looking at the kid's shoes and picked up a pair for little girls and thought, "These look like freaking boats!" I brought BeanBean, he tried them on and fell in love; they were labelled 9 W but they are about twice as wide as the ones he was wearing before, easily a EEEE, and they fit beautifully. They were also on clearance, missing their laces, and one of the shoe's lights didn't work so I got a 30% discount and got BeanBean a new pair of leather shoes for $6.99!!!
It was all painless, took about 20 minutes.
Hooray for clearance sales, where all the "unwanted" shoes go!
