OK, this probably should be filed in the TMI file, but for all of you parents, orthodox and non-orthodox alike, out there, what is the best way to "stop up" my little boy's colon? for the past few days, we've had to change a dirty diaper about three or four times a day and with that, much of the time, an outfit. It's not diarrhea, he's just going a lot more than usual. I've been told that certain fruits, e.g. applesauce and bananas can help turn off the spigot and we've fed him those with no change. It may also well be a little stomach bug, but I'm afraid that if this continues, he may not be allowed at daycare. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Again, sorry for the TMI.
Ask your doctor, but it sounds like he is normal. You do not want to overmedicate the little one. Drugs do terrible things.
When my son was little, pooping three to four times a day was normal. He was a breastfed baby. Thank God that he was not constipated. Otherwise, he could have cried and had other problems like gas and colic.
