benharperfan, I am dying to hear back from you!
After I posted, she began squatting and screaming. I finally gave her a suppository and it didn't help. They just poop them out! Who can hold it in long enough?? Not to be gross, but her little bottom was so sore and the poop was like clay. She was sort of "stuck in neutral" trying to push it out. I tried to help her but it didn't do any good. My poor baby! I called the doc and you are right, they told me prune juice and possibly mineral oil, which is fine, but WHY IS SHE CONSTIPATED??? My hubby would have me take her off all solids again, but at some point that will no longer be an option. ( and she would giht it, she is starting to really look forward to her little snacks) Her diet is so limited because I am trying to avoind wheat and dairy and all the major allergens till age 1. Is constipation a sign of allergies? I know diarrhea (SP) is. We had her tested for a few things because she had bloody stool for a while, but it is gone and the tests were neg. The doc though maybe she was just straining. The fecal occults were neg too.
I just want her to get better. She is SO little!
I think I will try pulling her off the cheerios, but we are on out way out of town, so I am not sure I can do it this week. What else can I give her to snack on that is portable? I will try some cut fruit. She only really has 2 bottom teeth.
