8 Days?!?!

Children/Infants are amazingly resilient.  Nathan successfully went 8 days without a bowel movement last week.  The doctor has told us not to worry until day 5 - so we didn't.  Then day 5 came and went, as did day 6, day 7, and most of day 8.  That warranted a call to the pediatrician.  After explaining all the things we had tried on days 5-8 we were finally prescribed a Rx laxative.

8 days, 4 bottles of juice, 3 doses of karo syrup, 2 suppositories, 1 Rx laxative later and countless warm baths...We have poop!

It amazes me the things I get excited about nowadays.
