My 12 month old has been having some issues with constipation consistently for the past 3-4 weeks. He’s only pooping every 3-4 days and when he goes he has to really strain and usually ends up crying. It’s so sad! I’m trying to take things out of his diet (like cheese and dairy) and increase fruits (like prunes, etc) but nothing seems to be helping. Does anybody have any suggestions on what I should do? Is this serious enough to get tests run by his pediatrician? Side note: I have Crohn’s disease, so there is a history of GI problems but when I discussed odds of my children also having it with my OB she said it was very, very low as Crohn’s is pretty rare.
