Potty Train? Not now...

Yes, the culprit that hold back potty-training for En En is constipation. Even till today she's not willing to tell us when she wants to do big business simply because she's afraid of the painful feeling... As a result, En En keeps her bowel movement moment as long as she can and we have no choice to give her medicine for softening the stools every alternate day.

Been giving her "cheap" formula milk for almost a month now. Her stool no longer hard as rocks but we believe it's her habitual way to keep the stools in her tummy until she finally decides to let go. Such a weirdo baby... She was previously taking Gain Plus but now change to Nespray 1+ (yeah... ease on mummy's pocket too, LOL!) and there is a different of her "output" as well. Even she doesn't have bowel movement for 2 days, by the time she does her business there is no more hard stools and bleeding. That's a blessing! Hopefully, she will outgrown the fear for the red potty soon...

Poor girl.. I guess hv to give her more time. When she doesn't associate any pain with it, then it'll be 'biz' as usual. Does that mean "cheap" formula milk is not that heaty?
Btw, a tag for u here.

sasha: huh? got such thing arr? So cute... haha!

slavemom: I think "cheap" formula milk is less heaty, at least it's true for En En's case. Thanks for the tag, dear...

Poor En-En...I hope she gets over her fear of pooping. Would giving her things like yakult and yogurt help with softening her poop?

I read that sometimes it's alck of water that's also making the poop hard. I notice when Sean doesn't drink enough, his poop is harder than usual.

Hey prev my son also change from GP to Nespray. Nespray is more suitable for him. Now he is into sustagen.
