So the Mom who is breast feeding I guess took immodium to stop her own runs, constipated her daughter? Is that even possible? Another thing how is wiggling a thermometer in the poor kids bum gonna make her poop? Poor kids being raised by a idiot. Give the baby some baby food plums/strawberries/blueberries and stand back. Why do people feel the need to overshare about their babies? I have one and I like to give her a air of mystery. Always leave em guessing/wondering.
@Carolyn-I suppose it could be possible;not sure if it crosses over into breastmilk but there are many drugs that do (caffeine,for instance.)
What I worry about most in all seriousness is possible anal fissure from introducing a rectal thermometer and “wiggling it.”
This person should be calling her pediatrician,not posting it on FB! My younger son had difficulty passing stool and we were advised to give him mineral oil.
Wow,I think this is one of the first times I have posted something on here that wasn’t sarcastic….
Jesus christ, *agrees with Ummm..Yeah*, why not call her pediatrician rather than letting everyone else know. But seeing as she can apparently take medicine herself that makes her daughter constipated, she must be some sort of magical healer!
On the other hand, that thinking good poop thoughts was pretty funny.
This isn’t cool. I mean, if you need advice on the subject, then send someone a private message, but if you put “shit” like this on your facebook status, there’s ether something seriously wrong with you, or you’re crying out for attention.
I’m banking on attention.
How much immodium would one need to drink for it to pass over to the baby? I really hope she never stuck anything in that poor baby’s back door. And I totally agree some people have kids as props in their own little show that they put up on f.b. Im not innocent I have bought a few goofy hats and plopped them on my kids head and laughed my ass and posted the pics. But damn if a baby in a Carmen Miranda fruit hat is wrong, then I dont want to be right!
ok, am I the only one who is concerned that some mother thinks it’s ok to insert object in her baby’s bottom unnecessarily? Those thermometers are only when there might be a fever, and then should only be used for measuring that, and NOT be wiggled around…wtf??
That’s wonderful advice Katie! There should be no need to use a rectal thermometer unless a person has had mouth surgery in which case there are plenty of other methods and they are for checking temperatures not for digging out poo!
Rough. Lovely to know about Vanessa’s beautiful daughter having a poo. A little bit like a friend of mine on FB who’s status was ‘is happy that the birthing scars are healing and she is walking a bit more normally now’. Defaced!
Jesus Christ, but babies are boring as fuck. I’m glad my breeder friends have the good sense to refrain from posting shit like this as their own status updates, or I’d seriously be conducting a cleaning jihad on my friends list.
Actually doctors will often tell you to take your child’s temperature rectally to try and get them to go. It is a reflex for the baby to try and poop. Ask any parent who has taken a rectal temperature.
And, yes, babies, and toddlers should have their temperatures taken rectally as it is more acurate.
To all you “doctors” A: Infantile constipation is quite common (i dont think is associated with the immodium) and B: It is a common practice to use a thermometer per rectum for stimulation and it is advicable from most paediatricians. Nothing wrong with it.
YOu people are morons.. Don’t post on something you obviously know nothing about…
I have an 8 week old, and she gets constipated often. Unlike this mother, we DID call her doctor. We also called the pharmacist, and my mother. ALL of them said to give her the thermometer. No, you don’t “wiggle it” around, but you use it just as if you are taking their temp (which is the way ANY doctor will tell you to take a baby’s temp)
And the medicine the mother took MORE than likely did not cause the baby’s constipation. Most medicine does not cross into the breaskmilk, which also means that she couldn’t of taken a medicine to get rid of it for her baby. Ask any lactation specalist that one…
