DS2 had not done a poo since Sunday, so yesterday evening I phoned NHS Direct for advise. I got phoned back by the doc and they asked me to take him in to see them. Anyway just before I was about to leave the house he did a poo, so I phoned up and cancelled seeing the doc.
However he has not done a poo today. So since last Sunday he has done one medium sized poo. Normally he does on average 2-3 large poos per day (leaking nappy big) plus a few smaller ones.
Should I be worried? I am thinking if he doesn't do one tomorrow I may take him to the GPs on Monday. Am I over reacting?
The one last night mut have been runny as it was completely soaked up by the nappy. No liquid in the nappy, just the nappy being a yellow colour iyswim. But at least once, sometimes twice a day, his poo is so big it goes down his leg and up his back.
My ds used to go several times a day then suddenly started going about once every 10 days. The longest he has gone is 18 days. He sees a pead every 2 weeks about a unrelated problem and she was a bit about 18 days but she hasn't been concerned about it.
