My 15 month old hasn't pooped in a week. While this is not my first experience with him being constipated, it may be the worst. He is an incredibly picky eater. When I say picky, it's more than just refusal. He will often put something in his mouth only to gag or try to claw it off of his tongue. He's also become uninterested in baby food fruits and vegetables and after one taste will knock the spoon away from his face while crying. He will eat meat, but beyond that, it's yogurt, cheerios, apple juice, and whole milk. This is killing me! I still nurse him at night.
Now for my most current dilemma. We've been putting miralax in his bottle once a day for the last month and at least that had turned around. Until this week. For the last 24 hours, he has been straining and crying (yes, all through the night - he just wanted to be held every hour on the hour, so I ended up sleeping on the floor next to him. Please excuse any grammatical or spelling errors. It was rough.) without being able to pass anything. I gave him a supository and he just pushed it out. I need to do something to give him relief before I continue the diet battle, but I don't know what else to do! He's hardly even eating right now as well. I think his little insides are too full of poop!!! Will be calling the ped today, but they don't open for another two hours. Any any any ideas!!!!!!
