Ever since solids entered my dd's body, there's been trouble in the pants. Specifically with poo. That first solid batch to come out hurt my dd and now she dreads moving her bowels. Which translates into holding it for weeks.
She is 2 years old and still nurses day and night. A late comer to solids, around 16 months is when solids became a part of everyday. I give her apricots, prune juice, pears, peaches, brocolli... anything to move the system but to no avail.
Here is my question.... could it be that she just doesn't have alot to move. I've read bf children are quite efficient at digesting all the bm. I'd say the bulk of her diet is still bm and am wondering if she just isn't pooing much (every 2 weeks, sometimes longer) because she burns it all up.
She has always been in the 99% in all charts. When she does go, it is still mushy.... I'd say like very thick peanut butter. It's not too dry but it could be moister. I try to give her liquids but she is not big on much other than bm.
I figure some LLL mom must have come across this but find nothing in any literature I have. She has had allergic reaction to food before (around 1 year), so I am cautious. Could this just be a long transition from bfing to solids? Yes, I've told her ped. He just says try all the foods that make one go and put mineral oil in juice. Really doesn't help. Anybody have some info to share?
