Is My Milk A Laxative? BEeeRrrrAaaNT!

Lately Boogie has been pooping during or IMMEDIATELY after I nurse him. Our little piggy is such a little nasty man! He smells like rotten eggs, lol! I just finished nursing him and as soon as he pulled off, he let out a grunt, then BEeeRrrrAaaNT! After a few more BEeeRrrrAaaNT’s which lasted a few seconds each, he started smiling, kicking and cooing. It’s a routine now. Eat, poop, smile, kick, and coo. Then when I’m changing his diaper, smile, kick, coo *repeat*.

This made me remember something that happened at his 2 month well visit. I don’t know HOW I forgot to mention this. The nurse went down the chart asking us questions. She got down to asking about his bowel movements and this is what happened:

Nurse: How’s his bowel…
Boogie: BEeeRrrrAaaNT!
Me, Daddy, and Nurse: *bursts in laughter*
Nurse: Obviously they’re fine!!!
Me, Daddy, and Nurse: *continues laughing*

    Too funny and true! When my son was born, no one explained the breastmilk=laxative effect to me, so I was a little worried about the fact that he seemed to immediately put out everything he took in. As soon as I figured out that it was fine, I had quite a few laughs over how LOUD he could be!

    Hi! Congratulations!
    My daughter definitely had bowel movements during or right after almost every nursing (though I described the smell as sweet). That’s the beauty of exclusively breast-fed babies…no diarrhea!

    Reading your blog makes want another baby. I’d forgotten all the fun, easy times (LOL)!

    now I know a little something about that one! LOL!! Will smells like a grown man after doing his ‘bidness’! I believe when they say boys are born men.
