So we had to take Stinks to the ER tonight when he had another bloody poop. The whole experience was fantastic (as fantastic as going to an ER when it’s 39 degrees can be) and we had the best doctor. She was the first to REALLY examine him and a specimen of his work, and she talked to us forever. Right away she saw the problem (and she made us come and see it too)…

Stinks has an ‘anal fissure’. Basically, he poops so hard sometimes he blows out his back end. (We’ve already made all the ‘cracks’ about his crack, but feel free to insert one here if you’re a twelve year old like us). It’s pretty common in breastfed babies, they heal quickly and on their own, and they’re not a cause for concern. So that means (drumroll please)…

We’re back on the boob! And we’re not on any diet!!!!!!!!!!!!

We still have to follow up with Dr. Lopez Monday, but YAY for that fabulous doctor. Best $150 we’ve ever spent.
