    Default Tried everything

    My dauhter is 5 months old and has not pooped in over a week, she usually goes every 3 days. Her stomache is rock hard, she is grunting a lot and really just uncomfortable. A few months ago she was prescribed a medication for constipation and within an hour she pooped, this time we tried it for 3 days and nothing, we tried, pear juce and water nothing, apple jiuce and water nothing and suppositories and still nothing. Anyone have any suggestions?
    also, can a 5 month old become jaundiced (she was at 5 days old but it cleared up within a couple of weeks), my hubby and I think she looks a bit yellow again.

    I am going to give her a call in the morning. Hopefully once she poops she will stop being so grouchy.

    Poor baby, I think you should call the ped and get that baby seen!! I looked it up 4 you on kellymom, here's what they had to say: http://www.mother-2-mother.com/normal.htm#NormalStools Not sure why she would look yellow.
    good luck to you and your baby, hopefully it's not serious, keep us posted.

    Going that long between stools usually isn't an issue for a baby this age, but the other symptoms you mention are alarming. If you're certain your baby is jaundiced, I would even recommend calling your ped's emergency line or going to the E.R. if they don't have one.

    Keep us updated!

    Thanx a bunch. My 3 year old son has surgery tomorrow, so I will have to call her ped. while he's in surgery and after hubby gets off work take her in if the Dr. wants to look at her.
