    Hi!!!

    Thomas pushed hard today after 3 days of nothing and what came out was a tiny very green bit of very thick poo. Am a bit worried about the green colour and then he does not poo much at all, maybe once a week. He does not drink much (he has drunk 9 ounces since 9 am and it is 3.13 pm) Is this related? any tip?

    thanks :)

    Could be his formula maybe? My son suffered with constipation quite bad but because he can have solids I feed him Organix apple and prune cereal, shoots out of him then haha. Have heard a bit of fresh orange juice in water is good for getting them going, just wear head gear when it comes flying out!

    Gripe water helped Kai unintentionally. He used to poo 2-3 times a week. Now since taking that on Sunday, he poos every day. And we didn't even use it for that, the idea was to help his burping as he took ages to burp.
