Tuesday was a really hard day for little Elijah. In the literal sense. Poor guy was so constipated that every time he tried to poop he would just scream. He did pass 3 little hard poops (TMI?) throughout the day and afterward he would scream for 15 minutes while I rocked him, and then he would whimper for another 5 or 10 before he would fall asleep. It was so sad. My normally super smiley little baby was so distressed and sad. Well, I finally got a hold of one of the nurses at the pediatrician's office and she suggested that I add 2-3 teaspoons of prune juice (the regular old adult strength stuff) to one of his bottles during the day. And do it everyday. Well, I am happy to report that Happy Smiley Elijah is back! He's had two regular poops since then and everything is digesting and moving along. He even seems to be spitting up less!
Thanks for sharing in my happy mommy moment. Feel free to do a little happy dance. I did.
On an unrelated note, I finally took down my Christmas decorations yesterday. Hooray! Now I just need to take them down to the basement and put the boxes away. You should know, that although it is late January, last year my Christmas decorations were still up through most of February. So, I am improving. Last year I was in my first trimester though - all sick and icky - so what's my excuse this year? Ummm..... Can't we just say I'm lucky I'm cute cause I can get away with more? That's what I tell my boys anyway (even the big one).
