From one extreme to the other

Okay, you remember me blogging about Jonathan having a what seemed to be neverending bout w/ diarrhea.  Well now, he is pooping at all.  He may have smeared 2 diapers this week.  Geeze!!!  I have tried almost every thing I know to do.  I have tried Karo syrup, a suppository, etc. with no success.  I'm going to try giving him some apple juice, b/c that always makes the others have upset tummies.  If that doesn't work, I'm just gonna cry.  I know my little man's tummy has to be hurting.  He has just fallen asleep on the shoulder and looks just like Bekah.
Have a blessed weekend.  Going to try to get some painting done.  Love ya bunches!

How long has it been since he had the diarrhea? And how much has he been eating?

The diarrhea stopped a couple weeks ago. He is eating like normal and having plenty of wet diapers.

I talked to you this morning so I suppose it might be pointless to repeat myself...but anyway someone else might come along and need the info so here it is again :P

It is normal for some breastfed babes to only have a bm every 5-7 days and even longer for some(one of mine would go as long as 9 days). Gives them stinky gas, but as long as when babe does go it isn't hard there is no need to worry. This gap between bms usually starts after about 6 weeks. That will change of course once you introduce solids or other liquids (if you supplement at all).
