Eliza goes for a couple days sometimes without pooping. Her stomach gets almost distended - she is packed full and sometimes uncomfortable, arching her back with discomfort. I have read on here that this is actually pretty normal.
But my sister insists that I should eat prunes, and treat it as if it were my own constipation I was dealing with, that she will get the effect of the prunes through my breast milk. Is that true? I myself am not having any problem with bowel movements. And I thought that my diet shouldn't affect hers, very much, as long as I am staying healthy, right?
If I thought she needed it, I would eat prunes, or whatever, but I'm not going out to buy them specifically unless I know it will have some benefit for the baby beyond my normal diet.
