I've been really sick with a stomach bug the past 3 days, and am just able to keep food down today.
I'm really only eating crackers and rice cakes today - most other foods still make me nauseous.
I did manage to continue breastfeeding my 7 month old through all of the vomiting, etc. but now I'm afraid she's constipated today.
We have been feeding her 1-2 times a day and last night I gave her some oatmeal cereal mixed with banana.
She normally poops a couple of times a day, but had only passed gas a few times today and looked like she was trying to poop without success.
She's also been very fussy and is not napping. (I only managed to get her to sleep a total of 50 minutes all day!)
Anyone have any suggestions?
My sister thought I should try giving her some pureed prunes.
Aside from everything I wrote above, she's actually in pretty good spirits right now - bouncing up and down and playing in her exersaucer.
That's why I'm not sure if it's constipation.
