Need your help mummies, ever since Jayden wasn't feeling well, his bowel movements have been irregular... he used to be able to do it everyday, or at least once every 2 days. But for the past week or so, he will only poo on the 3rd day, thank God it didn't pass 4 days yet. And yesterday for the first time, he pushed so hard to poo and a pellet like stool came out, it was pretty hard :( i quickly lay him down and put up his legs, and the rest came out soft and normal. But the hard stool was the one blocking the rest of his stools... when I saw it, I was shocked!!!! I felt so much pain for my poor baby... he pushed so hard till his face turned all red and he cried a little too.
What suggestions can you offer for Jayden to have normal bowel movements again?
I tried these few solutions, hopefully it will help:
-diluted his milk from 5 scoops to 3 with 150ml of water (he gets hungry faster cos I think the milk is diluted)
-gave him fruit puree
-made porridge with carrot + sweet potato puree
-boiled barley water without sugar
Any advice will be appreciated :)
