Poop. The Little Pirate pooped, and I was so excited I had to share the good news!
You see, no one warned me that adding a bit of rice cereal to his diet could clog him. And clog him, it did. My SIL told me that her doctor told her not to worry about it unless it had been 4 days, then you'd need to do a suppository. Well, it had been 3 and 1/2 days, and I'm not gonna lie, I was getting nervous about having to... well... make him poop.
I really can only come up with a couple things that might be less pleasant than pushing
something up my sweet baby's bum. One being actually using my fingers to dig out what won't come out on it's own. Which is what some mothers I know have had to do.
Motherhood is not for the weak.
This is what I'm coming to understand.
If I slow down the amount of rice cereal I give him, will it prevent this problem in the future??
