Caution, Contents Under Pressure and May Explode! (caution--poop blog)

Bug was put on Soy Formula about two months ago, due to an allergy or intolerance to lactose. This has been working, but has caused her to be constipated. I called her doctor a couple of weeks ago and she told me to give her one bottle a day of pear or prune juice. Two days ago I forgot. Yesterday she kept trying to poop and was only getting frustrated and crying.
About midnight last night she started her dinosaur noises that let us know she's pooped. Apparently it smells pretty awful to her as well. :) I put her up on the changing table and opened her diaper. There was nothing there. Since she was crying though I decided I would try and help and take a rectal temperature. So I opened the drawer and pulled out the thermometer that is only for that. I tried to put on the plastic cover. It tore through so I was pulling out another one and happened to look up at her. She had pooped. And BOY had she pooped. It was kind of like an explosion. It reminded me of a champagne bottle being uncorked. It had shot across the table and down the side. All over the top of the table and her. I was shocked and grossed out. I yelled for Lee and luckily he heard me and came running down. He asked what was wrong and I asked him to come over. He said OH! He grabbed a roll of paper towels. I pulled her up trying my best to not touch any of her parts that were poopy. I took her upstairs and put her in the bath. Lee finished cleaning up, washed up and went outside for a second to get some fresh air. I cleaned her up and got her dressed. She was pretty mad. But I didn't care much. We came back downstairs to sleep and Lee went back upstairs to sleep. She then cried for a bottle. I can imagine that all that was taking up a lot of space in her abdomen. So I fed her and then we slept. And slept all the way until 5:45 this morning. I didn't read about this in my mummy books. But she's happy as a clam this morning. I guess all's well that ends well. Silly bug.
