When I tough about my daughter eating something else besides my milk I always got worried. Why? you may ask, well because I was afraid of constipation, that is why I was hesitant about giving her the rice cereal so I completely skipped that since to tell you the truth is has like no benefits. I started giving her “baby food” even though she had tried bananas and avocado. I gave her apple then carrots and she seemed to like carrots best so I continued until I noticed her poop consistency was changing. I knew it was going to change but had no idea she was going to get constipated.
So one Friday night she had the worst evening she wanted to poop and couldn’t she was doing it like she was a rabbit tiny balls and very hard. I was at home with her because she was constantly crying and sweating from the pain she had because she was trying to poop. I was breaking my heart, I called my husband to bring her a prune Gerber, while that happened I went to the not internet and searched for remedies or what to do. That’s where I saw that I should limit the amount of banana and carrots babies should eat so that was a surprise to me. I also saw to give them prune juice or Gerber, apple juice or Gerber and or pear Gerber and other fiber food for her to have an easier bowel movement. I started to give her apple juice but she wasn’t a fan of it.
My husband got home without any prune Gerber and not going to lie it got me a little frustrated that he didn’t go to another store to find it aaggghh, but he did bring prune juice so happy for that. I gave her some and surprisingly she loved it and she drink almost 2oz, about one hour she started to cry louder and sweating more that’s when the big piece of poop was coming out. Worst 10 minutes or less of my life, I can’t stand see her in pain at all. When that big piece of poop was finally out she was relieve and went to sleep poor baby of mine.
Prunes were the remedy my daughter needed to poop soft and watery again. Thank you prunes you are the best!
