A Not So Poopy Issue

Hi. My EBF (until yesterday) 6 month old ds is not pooping! The last time was either last Saturday or Sunday night. Since then, we've only seen a few tiny streaks in his diaper. I have called the pediatrician twice. When I called yesterday, they recommended apple or prune juice and said to give a glycerin suppository today if things hadn't moved along. My son is not really showing signs of constipation other than unusually stinky gas. He has been a little fussier throughout the night, but I'm not convinced that isn't because of the crazy and unusual week we've had. I definitely don't want to use the suppository if he's not constipated, and the juice doesn't seem to be working. Has anyone had experience with suppositories and constipated babies? Should I use the meds or wait a while longer? Thanks for any advice!!

My DS hasn't pooped in forever, either. He's happy though, and his belly is soft so I'm not worried.

Well, my son finally pooped! YAY! I guess the prune juice did it, as I didn't have to use the meds. So, a soft tummy really means they're not constipated? That's good to know. My son's tummy was, in fact, soft over the last few days, but I wasn't sure if that really meant anything. Thanks for posting!
