Constipation ?-Aubrey
OK. Last night was the first night in a while Aubrey slept well. She has been crying out during the night, fussy and throwing MAJOR fits. I had finally decided that I think her tummy hurts. She has been still pooping 3x's a day, but there isn't much in the diaper each time. Is this still constipation if she is going? I mean one time (TMI here) she had a pellet about the size of a dime. The other 2 were about golf ball sizes (meaning there was one in each diaper).

Here is my question. She is teething AND on antibiotics so how is she constipated??? The only thing I have come up with is the intro to dairy. She is only eating things baked or cooked with dairy tho. Very limited amout of exposure to dairy.

My thought is to try and give her prunes and grapes and juice to get her moving on her own and see if it will resolve itself. I thought about pulling the dairy stuff but what if her body just needs an adjustment period.... HELP???

Nolan struggled with constipation when we switched him to milk. Also he had hard bms. I think it isn't the amt that says they are constipated but the consistancy. If it is dry, and hard she could be constipated and go a lot during the day. This is just what I think though. I wouldn't pull the dairy just yet and see if she will go herself with the prunes. We give Nolan a glass of apple juice everyday to help him. Hopefully that it works itself out soon.

My son is very allergic to dairy (IgE), but his big sister is intolerant or maybe has an eos reaction to dairy. In her case, dairy has caused her to be really constipated over the years. Over the past year, (she's now 9) she stopped being so constipated, but started to vomit here and there. I cut her way back on the dairy & now she is better all the way around. So, maybe it is a dairy issue with Aubrey. A really good way to tell is to pull it again & see if things improve. And, if you haven't read the book "Is this my child?", I really recommend it. I'm going to get it from the libray again. It covers all kinds of allergies & intolerances and basically tells you how to figure it all out. Ellen

I should add she has been tested for milk allergy (blood test) and it came back negative. I guess some kids don't grow out of the intolerance...

Also mom to Nathan. born Jan.20th, 2009, MPI . so far dx with reflux and has an extremely sensitibe GI system. Also dx with primary immune deficiency disease.
That sounds like constipation to me. Jazz goes thru that sometimes. But I wanted to say that sometimes Soy constipated people (it constipated me terribly), it also makes them a bit tired too. I would keep going with the milk for now, as long as you can give her something for relief?

Meggy weaned herself from dairy completely. She used to have terrible constipation bad enough that she has hemorrhoids, and a prolapse, but prolapse was from sigmoidoscopy.

Your doc. may recommend against, but u can ask if she can drink a couple extra ounces of water a day to see if it helps. My brother in law is in med school and stresses to us all the time how important the water is.

Just for the record my daughter (Kim) also tests negative to dairy, but as they say on another site REACTIONS TRUMP RESULTS. She definately reacts to dairy, it just isn't an IgE type allergy. El
