Andrew has had pooping problems as far back as I can remember (at least since 5 months old). I for the life of me can't figure out what the problem is and doctors don't say much about it. In my very small medical knowledge I have to think being constantly constipated is NOT normal, especially for 2 years. I hate to be the mom who continues to bring up the same issue at the Dr. visits after I've been told on several occasions that he "should" grow out of it. It's been 2 years, how long must he go through this? So, I've sunken to a new low. I am keeping a "pooping log" (No pun intended). I am recording everything he eats, drinks, any dietary supplements he gets, when he poops, the consistency of the poop, and any other detail I can-I can't believe this is my life. If someone had told me that as mom, you need to analyze your children's poop, I would have gagged, and never thought twice about having children.
I love this little cutie so much and my heart breaks for him as I find him hunched over in a corner, turning a bright shade of red from so much pushing- only to find barely anything in the diaper.
If anyone has any advice on this, or knows something "new" to do, please send me your knowledge.
