Our First Cold & Constipation, Plus Tips!

It was bound to happen and I’ve been fearing it…the dreaded cold. We made it all the way to 8-1/2 months before Petit Macaron, and I’m very glad I had the extra time to get more comfortable with the parenting thing before our first cold hit. I can’t imagine having a sick newborn – yikes! What […]

Ask Dr. Tom: My child gets constipated when we travel (or even when we go to church)

Wow, we were blown away by the Hellobee community’s interest in childhood constipation and our interview last week with Tom DuHamel, PhD aka Dr. Tom. In case you missed the interview last week, Dr. Tom is a clinical child psychologist who used to be the Chief Psychologist at Seattle Children’s Hospital; he’s been working with […]


Solid foods & constipation

I recently shared the very beginning of feeding Baby H solids (for us, a variety of purees). It was so happy-go-lucky and fun: having Baby H try different foods and watching her face change into either excitement or absolute disgust! It was fun and an adventure and everything was going great… until this last week […]
