my 8.5 month is having trouble with constipation. she has only ever gone a few times a week at best and sometimes just once a week.
since she started eating she was going more like a few times a week depending on what she ate. tonight she stopped eating dinner and i knew she was trying to poop and she was having such trouble crying and sweating, it was awful.
i held her and took her to change her diaper and she just cried so much as she went, and the thing is it didn't look like it would be hard to pass (maybe tmi, lol)
i have ebf 2 other kids that pooped a few times a day (about what this lo goes a week) until i weaned them at 2.5 years old.
this lo is totally different, and i am baffled as to how she is having such trouble since she is mostly getting breastmilk..............i would say food is about 20% of her intake at the very most right now. and everytime she has problems i just nurse her for about 2 days before i giving her food again, just to clear her system.
any of you have this trouble with your kids? ideas?
i will for sure discuss with the pedi at our next visit, and keep an eye on things.....i do know it seems to happen more with babyfood then tablefood.
