The Baby and the Poop
Good Morning all! So I planned on taking Thursday down but I'm going to forfeit now. My littlest one is still a little poop factory. I'm bummed that I can no longer blame it on the whole mango juice debacle. It's been over 24 hrs and we are still pooping (the royal we).
And how does the little man feel about this? He seems just fine. He's in a good mood. He's running around. And, most importantly, he ate breakfast! I fed him eggs. I read in a wonderful book called Toddler 411 that eggs are good for the poops. Btw, the pediatrician said to do the BRAT diet but I don't believe it. Goes back to the whole stubborn thing.
I do avoid triggers but I don't limit. Call it what you will. I don't feel it's right to give my little poop machine apples, bananas, toast, and rice only. He can't even eat apples.
So what would you do in my situation? It's 730am and we're already at 2 in the poop count, not counting the poop at 2am. Would you do the BRAT diet? Would you feed them something special?
I am giving him coconut water and floratil (something for a healthy intestine)
