Projectile Poop!

So DS has projectile poop...is that normal? My biggest fear with having a boy was having him pee all over me...that fear quickly took the back seat when I saw how his poop shoots out with force (think water gun force). I don't know if I should be eating something different or if it's a boy thing...or what.

I feel bad because I feel like it hurts him and he has to squeeze hard to have it come out. I do BF exclusively and have been giving him those gas relief drops but I don't know if there's anything else I should be doing.

Any thoughts?

While I haven't actually seen Gillian poop yet, I've felt the force of it against the diaper. I'm sure it would shoot out halfway across the room if she wasn't wearing a diaper. She also has a lot of gas, but doesn't seem bothered by it most of the time, just a bit fussy before some of her giant farts.

Oh wow this sounds familiar! Nope its not just boys, this was my DD! She was a way more dangerous diaper change than either of my boys! Honestly I couldn't find anything that would help, and I tried everything. She was gassy, but it never really seemed to bother her much, no crying fits, just projectile poop! It was like shooting whipped cream out of an aerosol can (sorry that was graphic lol). Just take cover and make sure to keep him covered!

Thanks Karen, haha, I will keep that in mind! Luckily I haven't been pooped on in a few days- I'm getting better at speedy diaper changes, haha.
