We had a few firsts today. We drank from a sippy, since he is refusing a bottle, tried prunes, and and cut the boy’s hair! Last month it all fell out, except this little patch right at the top of his head and of course the mullet. The top just kept growing and growing. I am afraid of trimming the back, that is some super soft baby flesh back there. If I were to nick him,, oh the tears I would cry! Here is a before and after… looks like a little buzz cut now.
Alright, I’m really sorry to go here but we need help. Nate is lucky if he’s “going” once a week. He has such gas it wakes him up at night. We have been trying to get him to drink some juice which isn’t going well, even shooting it down his throat with a medicine dropper isn’t working. Today we gave him a little bit of baby food. Poor kid, his first solids were prunes. He was not a fan. What can I do? If it weren’t for the painful gas I would let it go but he is trying to go daily. I’ve read that growth spurts bring change and once per week is not a concern, I cannot find much about constipation and breast feeding, just that its common for this but he is uncomfortable, is it possible that he just doesn’t have to go? When he finally does its soft, normal breast-milk poop, just a lot of it.
God help me, I cant believe I’m discussing this.
