Re: Lilly's not pooping!!

Yah, that happened to DS about that age too and he was EBF. I finally panicked after about 5 or 6 days and put one of those little glycerin suppositories (they had given us one at the hospital as a 'side note' - gosh they give stuff out like candy sometimes!) up his bum and 5 or 6 hours later it was all out. If you get really worried you can call the doc about that ...they just use 1/2 one for the little guys & gals.

But I don't think you need to worry too much about it right now. If it's more than 5 or 6 days I'd probably think about doing something about it. (Have also heard of Karo syrup in their breast milk but I dunno, I never wanted to put anything in my DSs tummy at that age cept bmilk if I could help it.
