My little boy is 2 months old now and exclusively breastfed, He pooped about every diaper for the first 2-3 weeks.. then all of a sudden it was a whole week and he didn't go ( I asked the pediatrician and they stated BF babies could go every diaper or once a week and it wasn't a big deal). However, it was to us.. his belly hurt so I decided to try the glycerin suppositories.. they worked in about a minute! And a totally new baby afterwards.. since that time (5-6 weeks now) He can't poop unless he has a suppository.. I let it go for about 4 days to a week hoping he'll go on his own but I end up giving the suppository bc he's in so much pain.. About 3 days ago he's taken to throwing up when he eats.. He goes for his 2 months check up later this week and I"m so scared they're going to blow it off or say he's not handling the breast milk.. ?? Any ideas? Things to try? Has this happened to anyone else?? I"m at a loss and I'm feeling like I'm failing him as a mommy!
