Fiber - it really works!

The theme of the week seems to be poop. Just ask my friend H over at Beyond the Belly.

My little one has a problem with (**whispering**) constipation. (She'll be so embarrassed one day when she reads this.) A few days ago, I got this great tip about Fiber One yogurt. Since we were at the store today for a few other things, I dropped a couple of 6-packs (of yogurt....) into the cart. Since Miss M had not eaten breakfast this morning, she was starved after our excursion and begged for the yogurt when we got home (this was after she bit the bagels through the bag...). It was snack time anyway, so I sat both of the kids down to try our latest grocery-store find. They loved it - and Miss M asked for another. Being the loving mother that I am, and apparently not considering the consequences, I handed her a second cup of yogurt. Did I mention that it's Fiber One yogurt? Yes, I think I did. Did I read the label, which indicates that it has 20% of the daily value of fiber per serving? Per ADULT serving? Ummm, don't think so. Let's just say that it certainly works (even better than blueberries!), and we thankfully avoided any poop-related messes (unlike my friend H), but from now on, we'll be limiting the Fiber One yogurt to one serving a day.

LOL! I'm going to have to remember the Fiber One thing for little Anna. I have to put Karo syrup in her day care bottles every day to keep things regular. It's just a drop, but it does the trick. After dealing with a month of on again off again poo, I decided we'd do whatever it took! Well, as you have read, she has NO problems.

Oh- we might have to purchase some fiber one yogurt at our house. Ellie has the same problem! We have tried a few other things, but I think yogurt might be the trick! What would we all do if we couldn't share these funny poop stories with each other!
