Post subject: New mom with 5 week old baby girl
My husband and I tried to conceive for 4 years. During the last year we did 5 cycles of IUI and finally conceived on our last try before considering in-vitro. The pregnancy went great with only minor heartburn as my nemesis. Right now, we have a very fussy baby (I'm thankful for her, but she is a handful). Doctor thinks she has colic (12am-3am usually), and also has acid reflux and is on medicine for that . She is also a very gassy baby and right now, I think she may be constipated and in seems to be in awful pain. This morning when she woke up she did not have a poopy diaper, which I wasn't really concerned with, but now she hasn't had a stool sample all day, only wet diapers. I have tried the bicycle legs, and having her do "sit ups" to help with the gas. She has passed some, but still seems miserable after she eats. I have done Mylacon drops as well. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I should do to help her? Should I even be concerned that she hasn't pooped all day? She is normally poopy with each feeding.
Thank you, and I look forward to getting to know everyone.
