Liquid Constipation In 6 Week Old?
My 6 week old daughter has been having trouble pooping for several weeks. She had been going every few days (2-3), but now she's pushing 4-5 days. She went last Weds, and then if it weren't for our help last Sunday, she likely wouldn't have gone. The wife and I used this product called Windi last Sunday and again yesterday. You stick this little pipe/funnel up the baby's butt to release gas. Well we got some gas, but we filled 2 very messy diapers in about 5-10 mins with what looks like hot chocolate. I was thinking, no way she's constipated if its all watery, but the Pediatrician says they can still be constipated even if its like this. They suggested Karo syrup (wtf? corn syrup?), or a small amount of prune juice in the bottle with breast milk. If that fails, then use a suppository.
My question is, has anyone else experienced this? If so what did you do? Is it really constipation?
