POOP!!!

I know that most ppl would think it is weird to get excited about posting a title called poop, but I am b/c it is about my Noah. I waited so long to be a mommy and so now I love even the hard times. I am just thankful that I get to have these moments...so here is my post about POOP, hehe

Mr. Noah is not feeling well these days and it just breaks my heart. He didn't go poopy for three days and was fussy so I called the doctor. The nurse told me about karo syrup and told me to use it as a natural laxative. After a day of using it (only 3 times per 4 ounces of formula) Noah finally pooped and I don't think I have ever been so happy about seeing poop in my life!!! HA!!! So I figured okay done no more karo, right? WRONG!!! Now he has gone two days without pooping and is getting fussy. Noah is usually a happy boy especially when he wakes up from a nap or has a full belly and when he is not I know something is wrong. Plus if he only takes 2 onces and refuses to eat.....he isn't feeling well. So I called the doctor again and she told me to continue the karo syrup and then slowly reduce it after he has a BM. She assured me that is is natural and does not hurt him at all. I am hoping this does the trick. I am about to ask dr. google if the similac sensitive can cause consitpation. If so, we may work on another formula b/c I don't want my boy always constipated and in pain.

We use Similac Sensitive, too. Drake did have a time when he would go longer between, but now that he has been on fruits/veggies, we have no problem there! I have heard about Karo Syrup, but so glad we never had to use it. Hope Noah gets "regular" soon! ;-)
