Dear Daycare

Once again, my annoyance with his daycare class leads me to this letter:

Dear Daycare,
What the hell are you feeding my child?
Love, Me

Over the Christmas vacay and every weekend, my child is “regular” (read: he is having a bowel movement everyday). About Tues/Wed, he is stopped up like a cork. So bad, that he is crying and shaking trying to get ANYTHING out. I do daily belly exercises and baby yoga to help him. I have inspected each daily report and I’ve come to the conclusion that it must be the rice cereal. We feed organic brown rice at home occasionally and oatmeal cereal doesn’t seem to cause the problem either. So Monday morning I’m headed there to let them know (with a doctor’s note in hand)! It makes me wonder tho, HOW MUCH cereal are they feeding him to cause a blockage like that?

  1. So you do you think too much rice cereal can cause constipation? Thanks for the tip

    • Yes, since rice cereal (especially white rice) has a tendency to “bind” you up while having lose stools…I believe they were giving him a little too much. It also could have been that his poor little intestinal tract wasn’t ready for it. Thank goodness we’re all good now!
