So, ever since I started giving Haven Poli-vi-sol with Iron, she's been getting constipated. I've never had to deal with this before since Venily had the exact opposite problem from like 6m-19m. Haven gets iron in her cereal as well, so maybe she is getting too much iron? There has been a whole day that will go by sometimes where she doesn't poop. And when she does, she cries and only goes a little bit at a time. And this may be WAY too much info, but today she was screaming so bad while I was changing her and I could see she was still trying to go and then it hurt so bad, she'd stop herself so I literally pulled it out with my bare hands, which helped tremendously because I got a lot out! (LOL, I totally remember reading about a mom doing that in my AP English class (Sula by Toni Morrison) and I thought it was the stupidest book ever and now I can finally appreciate what the woman did!).
Any suggestions? I'm going to stop giving her the Poli-vi-Sol with Iron for a while and maybe just buy the regular kind and hope that helps. She already eats a lot of fruits and vegetables but I'll probably buy prunes I guess? And I know juice is supposed to help, but I think I've only given her juice once and that was a LONG time ago, so I'll have to get some of that as well. And then I'll ask her pediatrician about it next month when she goes in for her checkup. I might even have her write me a prescription for vitamins anyway since I want her to have one with fluoride and I can only get that by prescription and see is she still wants me to give her one with iron in it as well!
