Charlie bathroom update

doctor office

Charlie & Lola at the doctors office Monday

So it was back to the doctor today………………laxatives and enemas appear to have no affect on my son. He must have bum cheeks of steel!!! he had more x-rays which confirmed that nothing had moved! So we are going to do the same again this weekend increasing the doses slightly and if still nothing……..of to the specialist we go! I cannot believe my son has made poop a topic of casual conversation for me. I never wanted to know all about enemas ie did you know you can get a mineral oil, saline enema or phosphate enema????????? nor me! You can also may homemade enemas (2 level teaspoons of tablesalt salt to a quart of lukewarm distilled water – do not use soapsuds, hydrogen peroxide…would someone really use this??????, or plain water as an enema) useful information to someone like me I guess!

Here is some useful information though for anyone slighly constipated

Great foods to eat are –

fruit and veg – figs and dates (never even thought about these…Charlie loves fig newtons!), raisins, peaches, pears, apricots, celery, cabbage and corn. Also popcorn, nuts, shredded wheat, oatmeal, brown rice, lima beans, navy beans, chili beans, and peas are good sources of fiber.

Foods that are constipating – cooked carrots (who knew!!!!), milk, cheese, yoguart, ice-cream.

All juices are good except for orange juice.

I will keep you all updated as I am sure you are all keen to hear more……………………!!

  1. Have you tried Prunes? When Bug was under a year old and had constipation issues we would give him baby food prunes….and it worked for him. Some times we would either prune juice or pear juice. This worked for him too. You could buy that baby prune food and add it into the food that you have made.
