Prunes look like Poop


We saw the pediatrician today. Cade has reflux and needs medication (the last one didn't work and he vomits between 5-15 times a day). She also recommended that he start solids to decrease the acid production and subsequent regurgitation. So we started with prunes tonight. Strange choice I know. Cade has had some excrement issues of late so this was to assist in his bowel clearing (also pediatrician recommended).

I boiled and pureed the prunes and they made a big mess. My kitchen was covered with poop looking splatters. For those of you who have been in my kitchen you know I am just a tad anal when it comes to the cleanliness/order of this space. It took me a solid cleaning frenzy to get rid of the poop-like splatter.

I took a picture of him with prunes all over his face. It looked like poop was dribbling down his chin. I stupidly started this at 6pm, not thinking of when those prunes will reach his tiny bowels. Now I await a night of poop.

Poor Cade with the reflux - not fun! And that totally does look like poop. I've never made prunes for my baby - how'd that go? Did Cade like it?

Don't forget we he reaqlly starts to teeth that he will be swollowing a lot of internal acid and you will need to make sure his bottom etc is well covered with cream or vaseline as his urine will be carrying the acid and it will burn him. Dad
