It was time to have Hunter try a new fruit, so yesterday afternoon I introduced prunes. He seemed to enjoy them and ate them right up. I thought nothing of this choice... until this morning.
After I fed him, he grunted like he was going poop. I knew that he needed to get in the bath, so I didn't immediately change him because I was eating at the time. After I was done, I got the bath stuff ready to go and went to clean him up before putting him in the bath. I open up the diaper and... HOLY COW! There was an explosion in there! It totally looked like a giant chocolate bar had melted in there!
He was wearing some brand new pj's and the explosion spread to those as well but thankfully, I got the stain out of them. I couldn't help but wonder why he exploded like that, but then I got to thinking... prunes... prunes... why does that sound familiar? Old people... prune juice... hmmmm... OH, DUH!
Google confirmed my realization... I guess I somehow blocked out the fact that prunes make you poop! I called the doctor and she basically said that I should keep Hunter away from prunes for casual eating... but that I could use them in dire situations, i.e. when he's constipated...
When I was searching for answers on Google, I ran across this article (<---click here) and I was laughing hysterically while reading it because it hits the nail right on the head! Hopefully Hunter only has one blow-out and not several like the article mentions... but I guess we have the rest of the day to find out! :P
