Poopin’ Pears

Okay, so for any of you who are having GI issues, I have to share with you what REALLY works in our house for regularity.   

Ronan used to have a very hard time with going poo.  He strained, he held it for days, he cried and I cried – it was awful. 

I tried magnesium, suppositories, Benefiber, etc.  – nothing worked. 

He loved fruit, but he wouldn’t eat anthing with the skin on it.  Too funny of a feeling on his teeth to bite into it, I suspected, so I peeled and cut his apples and pears for 4 years.

Along came The Loudon, who will eat a live chicken – why bother with all the cooking?  Ronan saw his little brother happily biting into apples, pears, and anything else he could get his hands on – the child is like a dog, and he will eat until he gets sick if nobody stops him first!

Anyway, Ronan saw and decided he had to get himself a piece of that!

He bit into a pear, he bit into another pear, and then he promptly POOPED without complaint! 

For the past two years, this has been our poopin’ secret.

So, for those of you still straining, so to speak, try the poopin’ pears method! 

Added bonus, if you are watching sugar for yeast control, pears are one of the only fruits (berries too) that are very low yeast feeders.

Happy Pooping!

Also, please watch this video.  It’s the only thing that has gotten The Loudon to sit on the potty, and it’s one of the funniest things I have ever seen.  Watch it all the way ’til the end for the full effect.
