The magic powder......

"Poopy Powder" as we have very affectionately dubbed it in this house, is a godsend! What is poopy powder you ask? Miralax!

I have to admit, I feel like a horrible mom. For months and months I really thought Finley was just a mean mean kid. Now that we have her on the miralax everyday and she isn't constipated anymore she is like a whole different child I mean not even in the same ballpark as old Finley.

Don't get me wrong. She's still my "spirited" child who can throw a tantrum with the best of them but she smiles now! ALOT! And I realized a few days ago when she started running around laughing and smiling again that I pretty much suck. I can't believe I missed this one.

I'm not gonna lie, I'm feeling alot of mommy guilt over this one.........

At least I have my Finley back. My happy sweet sweet Finley back. Hopefully to stay this time!

If it's any consolation I had the same guilty. I let it get to the point where there was much straining and grunting and then TEARS! I let my baby cry! But the "poop powder" (What we call it too!) is a miracle worker! Just don't skip a day!

We use the Tarjay knock off, it's $2 cheaper and works just as well for us! I hate the idea of paying to poop!

Ok - so did your doctor reccommend it? I want to know how much to give my little guy. I also have twins, they are boys at 14 months old. One is regular like clockwork and the other just strains and crys and all the normal things don't work. - email me -
