View Full Version : constipated baby
i know that boobie feed babys can do days without having a poo but, william has a med called dompirdone which pushes all things fast out his tummy and into his bowels and out. so he would normally poo at least 4 times a day if not more and the wee mite aint been sinse wednesday. today i have given him some extra water, fruit instead of baby rice and on my mums advise a bit of choclate as that is what she did for us. none of it has worked. has anyone else got any ideas of how to get things moving for the poor chap. i am wondering if i should ring nhs direct tomorrow if he aint been to find out if increasing his meds has done this as it was wednesday we increased all of them :huh: (he takes omperozele and gaviscon aswell as domipridone)

Hi Miss U ( and Dora! )
Hows life? I'm glad the little fella got it out of his system.
If it happens again you could try a little brown sugar diluted in warm water ( I know its not ideal giving sugar but it does work!), and moving their legs as if they were riding a bike helps relieve pressure and helps them go too.
