The Scoop on Poop
I never thought I'd obsess about poop the way I have this week. Desmond hadn't pooped in 4 days and he was obviously uncomfortable and irritable about it. He cried more than normal and often his cries would come suddenly and forcefully accompanied by him curling his body in. I felt bad because there was nothing I could do. I tried bicycling his legs (not easy when he has them stiff!), rubbing his tummy, giving him a warm bath, and finally taking his temperature to stimulate things. Last night taking his temperature finally worked, and three very messy diapers later he and I were both much happier. Pooping has never been more exciting.
