My DS2 is 14 weeks now and is finding it hard to poo!!! (sorry if TMI), he has now not been for 3 weeks and 3 days and i dont know what i can do to help him poo! (he normally only goes onces every 10 days anyway!)
He is exclusively bf!
Is there anything i could eat to make it easier for him to go?
I have a well balanced diet having a regular intake of fruit and veg, and i try to eat healthy dinners (no fried food!)!
I spoke to the doctor and they have suggested that i try using vaseline to help him go (yuck!!!), they said to place it on a cotton bud with vaseline over it and if that dont help then try my little finger (with a glove on if i want!!!)
And if this dont help then i have to go in to see her!
I was wondering if there is anything i should eat to help him go as well!
Maybe i will go and try the vaseline now, b4 i have lunch!
Will check to see if there are any suggestions after i've done it!
Some of the tricks that used to help dd were to massage her tummy and bicycle her legs. Warm baths help as well - you can do the massage in the bath too. You could also try eating prunes. But as it's been so long I'd take him to the doctors; three weeks is a long time.
