My son is 7 1/2 months (1st child). He is having A LOT of trouble pooping. It's extremely solid! He started turning blue & purple trying to push it out. He screams, cries, and gets short on breath. It really scares me!
The dr has said to use karo syrup and suppositories if he needs them. Neither are helping. He eats cereal & all types of baby food (& formula). I have tried only giving him food that I know will help him poop for one or 2 meals and the rest are more filling meals w/ like applesauce or something. The results usually end up being it doesn't help or he gets almost diarrhea. There is no "happy" middle. Please can anyone help?!?
