So with all the experimentation with solid food, and with the stress of mommy being in the hospital, Luca has been, to put it politely, less than regular for nearly a week now. He didn't seem terribly distressed about the situation until last night. Today I pumped him full of prune juice, but still nothing. Finally, on the advice of the Dean nurse hot line we tried a *ahem* suppository. Yeah. He was about as happy to receive it as we were to give it to him. Afterwords I nursed him to calm him down. Big mistake. I will simply sum up the situation with the phrase BIGGEST DIAPER BLOWOUT EVER. All over his diaper, all over him, all over my lap!!!!! Ah, the joys of parenting. I think this company should change their slogan to "Pedia-Lax, works so well you wish it hadn't!" By the way, take a gander at their mascot. First, why a penguin? Second, did they have to make him look like he was in the middle of receiving a suppository?
