I have a 7 1/2 month old who has been having a lot of problems pooping. If we don't assist him, he MAY get a little rock of poop out, but that is it...and that's rare. Most of the time he just doesn't poop, even though we can tell he tries to push something out. (We assist him by sticking a Q-tip with Vaseline on the tip into his bum. That makes him feel like he's pooping, so he pushes. Then we push down on his legs to help him get the large mass of poop out. This normally works.) We've given him prune juice with his formula, fruit for bfast and lunch, along with veggies. He drinks fruit juice here and there throughout the day. We don't give him any of the banana variety of fruits because my DR said they bind LO's up. I don't know what else to do besides help him poop, but I know we shouldn't have to do that every time he poops. Any suggestions???View Thread
Hi EMB- I've asked the same question and heard numerous times that the baby can not face forward until he is AT LEAST one years old. I guess some Dr's are now saying that they want LO's to face backwards until 2 years old. I have the same issue as you. My son is 20LB and 29". You should look for a convertible seat that will still face backwards. Good luck in finding one. View Thread
I love that this post is still going strong. I did countless hours of research on this topic and I am still not 100% sure of where I stand. I am 99% sure I do not want my little one vaccinated, but my husband does. So far, my little one has had a couple of shots, but I think we're done until he's 2. I'm mostly afraid of the MMR shot. That seems to be the doozey. I'd much rather wait untl he's a little older and then go through with them one shot at a time.View Thread
