Fynn has been having problems with his bowel movements for the last few weeks. He either will not or can't go, and when he does he usually leaves a small little "package" for me in his underwear. Not the nicest blog post, but a real part of our lives these last few weeks. I have been doing way too much laundry because of this, and he has become increasingly upset.
Finally, I went to our pharmacist Cathy on Monday and explained that I thought he was constipated. She agreed that is what his symptoms sounded like. He was also doing this little silent grunting/crouching. So she suggested a very gentle liquid laxative that we can add to his juice once a day. So far he has had 2 bowel movements in one day! He hasn't had an accident or done his little crouching thing in 2 days. I am hopeful that this was the problem and we have found a solution. The laxative is also non habit forming, so no worries with using it.
His mood seems much happier too. Poor little guy -- he was constipated.
