    She's refusing to eat.

    Advertisements
    she is not wanting to eat her bottle. all day she has been fighting it. she has ate her 6 am and 10 am bottle. but since then all she has had was her 4oz of juice and one jar of food.

    on top of that, she is having solid rock hard poop, like im used to her having hard poop. but this is super hard.

    Any ideas?

    Sounds to be like she's constipated.

    I'd give her a bit of prunes/prune juice (only if you're comfortable with giving her the juice).

    I know that Spawn won't take a bottle if she's having tummy issues, so I just don't give it to her until she's worked out her issues. She usually will take her pacifier and fall asleep and wake up in a few hours and then eat.

    i mean, she's acting fine. i had to put her on a differant formula for the weekend bc we ran out, and im wondering if that caused it, but this stuff is light green, really hard and has like kitty litter looking pellets in it.

    Maybe it is the formula?

    I know that when we switched Spawn to this "non-gassy" formula, it was a nasty lookin' green color but never had anything that looked like kitty litter in it.

    But Spawn's poop is always a shade of green (it's the iron in her formula) so I've never thought twice about the green part.

    Maybe google it? I would, but I'm here at work, so it's hard.

    i'm 95% sure its the formula, but this poop is seriously hurting her when it comes out. and it makes me feel so bad.

    give her things like apple juice or prunes/prune juice it will ease her constipation. Its more than likely the change in formula that is causing the issue. Maybe if you have some pedialite (sp) that helped my kids sometimes.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    Does she have any teeth yet?! She could be refusing her bottle, because she's teething.

    i just gave her 4 oz of apple strawberry banana juice like 30 mins ago, bc i saw how bad her poop was (i leterally had to push on her stomach and get it out). and she really didnt even want the juice. i mean, im starting to just think i should take her and the poopy diaper to the ER.
