At last, Sharlene got rid of her .....

....large, hard and painful stool with the help of enema and great effort on her part just now. She put up so much struggle when my sil, her nanny, hubby and I grabbed her to her potty after the insertion of enema. She was extremely terrified to push her poop out. All of us were there to encourage and support her and it was such a relief for her after she successfully pushed out her poop...she immediately gave herself a big clap and we too put our hands together and cheered!! Then, she looked at me with a sweet smiling face and I gave her a BIG hug with my tears rolling down my cheeks. What an eventful Sunday!!

Following this scary and upsetting episode, I should try to prevent this from happening again. Since birth, Sharlene has no constipation problem at all. I guess this was because she takes in a lot of fluid and was on breast milk for 1 year. I stopped breastfeeding her after she turns 1 year old on an attempt to conceive...but sad to say, I'm still trying now.

Early this year just before CNY she had her first constipation problem where she refused to eat and drink due to her hard and painful stool and it caused her to have an anal fissure. Last October, I changed her formula milk from NAN2 to Enfagrow A+ and I introduced Enfakid to her last week. I intend to change her formula milk as I heard that Enfagrow milk powder is quite heaty. Also I can't think of any other reasons that cause this besides her milk powder because she takes her fruits everyday and drinks more than enough water. So, I hope by changing her milk powder can help to prevent this chronic problem from recurring.
