I started ds on regular solids at 6 1/2 months. From that point on he has been having constipation troubles. I've stopped and started solids a few times. Anyways, he's been off solids for about 4 days now and he still isn't pooping much and his poop stinks SOOOOOOO bad. He usually doens't go much for a few days and then he starts to get really grumpy. He will have a HUGE HUGE HUGE poop that is really firm and it stretches and/or tears his anus, it's horrible. So I've just been breastfeeding for these 4 days and he's been miserable. He cries and screams when he sees anyone eating. When he sees me eating he crawls over and when I lift a bite to my face he opens his mouth. Yesterday I did break down and gave him a bottle with 4 oz of veyr watered down apple juice because my nipples are SO sore from all of the feeding. These 4 days he's been feeding every hour and so I'm really sore. I've posted a few times about his constipation and everyone tells me to stop the solid feedings but I really can't handle the nipple pain from the constant feedings. He WANTS solids, I can tell. I've been giving him flax seed oil in just a tiny bit of juice (1 oz or 2 oz) for the past week. I think I'm going to go to the grocery store and buy some prunes and make some prune baby food. Maybe he's just a guy that needs a lot of fiber in his diet??
