Constipation

Nora seemed a bit constipated today. To be honest, I’ve already forgotten the details of what she ate yesterday. She ate eggs, spinach, oatmeal, yogurt, kefir, meatloaf, beets, fish, lentils, blueberries, and apriums, but I have no idea what might be causing the constipation.

So I’ll keep a food diary (and simplify the offerings!) to see if there’s a culprit.

Friday July 8th: small, hard, poops, some straining

  • Breakfast: sole; oatmeal with yogurt, kefir, and walnuts; spinach with avocado.
  • Lunch: sole; spinach; avocado; blueberries

Aaaaaand she had a big poop after lunch and all was good. I lost track after that. I suspect the spinach was what did the trick, but I really can’t be sure.

She was constipated again over the weekend after a bunch of restaurant meals, but it’s hard to pinpoint a culprit other than (perhaps) not enough veggies.
