Re: Explosive poops relieving fussiness?
This sounds like absolutely normal behavior for such a young baby. Many young babies find using the bottom end of their digestive system to be a bit upsetting- which is natural when you consider that they never did it until after they were born! If you had never pooped or passed gas until 7 weeks ago, you'd probably find those things pretty weird and upsetting.
Explosive poops and loud toots are just part of the package with a lot of babies. Totally normal, and nothing to worry about. I don't know why the baby books so rarely mention it... Probably because they're scared that no-one would ever have kids if they knew the truth!
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
