Lucas has had a hard time pooping ever since he was born, really. The first week, he had no problem and it was mushy like it should be. But after that it got more peanut butter consistency and a few times it was super hard. This poor little guy strained so hard and cried a few times trying to get it out. It was harder than it should be and it hurt him. I felt so bad!! We actually gave him a bit of apple juice a few times to help him out. He started eating applesauce and bananas and fruits that would help him out a bit and it's gotten much better. He goes about once a day or every other day and doesn't strain at all anymore!! Yay for pooping babies!!! :)
