Quoting Viv, Ev & Gwen ♥:" My 5 year old hasn't pooped in about 5 days. I'm not entirely sure how long it's been since she goes ... [snip!] ... without one, so idk if I should follow the same thing or what.... I'll call her doc in the morning but it's almost 8pm now."
Quoting Nicola =):" these work great. DD should go immediately after use."
Quoting Viv, Ev & Gwen ♥:" We used those when she was a newborn once, I think I barely got it out of her bum before she went. Well, ... [snip!] ... she went. Well, not THOSE, but that brand for newbs. How long should I wait to see if the prunes work before getting them?"I'd give it until morning, personally. If she wakes up and still hasn't gone, then try a laxative.
Quoting Viv, Ev & Gwen ♥:" She said her tummy hurt, but not bad and she's asleep now so I don't think she's in that much pain. So I guess we'll see if she goes tonight and if not try in the morning. Thank you for the help!"
Quoting Nicola =):" Of course. Constipation sucks! DS has been having trouble with it lately. He is only 6 months though and doesn't understand. Poor guy..."It's awful with littles There's not a whole lot you can do to help them and it SUCKS.
Quoting Dr. Temperance Brennan:" Do you have any soothing wipes or a peri bottle? Her little butt is going to hurt after that, even if it's soft."We have a peri bottle but I should probably go get some witch hazel pads, thanks!
