    Duckman's original post about this procedure was concentrating on how to do this on pinkies (less than two weeks old).
    So Duckman stressed getting the water out of the bladder. Because a pinkie has a very small bladder and only pees when stimulated.
    Your baby has a very big bladder, and is old enough to pee when he wants to.
    If, after about 4 water feedings he is not pooping yet... it should be safe to drop back to every other hour. To let him (and you) rest a bit.

    Also, If you have not done so in 6 hours.. give him a small dose of infant Gasx.

    I am not seeing any dramatic discoloration in the pictures.

    Thank you so much for all your help. I will report back in the morning with how he does throughout the night. I feel much better having a plan of what to do.. thank you.
    Praying for poop!

    Still no poop..

    He now doesn’t want the plain water.. he pushes it away after a few sips.

    He’s acting so hungry for formula though..!

    Also,
    I did see a tiny tiny tiny speck of poop inside his anus this morning.. I got it out but nothing other than that.

    You may have to push a little water in him, pause, and then do it again.
    Continue the gentle tummy massage (especially on that left side) and the stimulus to pee and poop.
    Keep me updated on his urine output and how often you are stimulating.
    I know he is hungry.. but we don't want to put more formula in until we get the tummy down some.
    Did you give him some more GasX during the night?
    You are using just plain water.. not electrolyte, right?
    (Electrolyte encourages the body to pull water out of the intestines.. and we want to do the opposite)

    Got some water in him.
    He peed some and had a little gas and one tiny tiny bit of yellow loose stool.

    Yes I gave him gas x about 3 hours ago. One drop. Would more be okay?

    And yes Iím only doing plain warm water.

    He just pooped two small little yellow semi soft stools. Iím relieved something happened but I know he has A LOT more to come through..

    Will let him rest for an hour. Heís very active still & scratching along the box usually before the hour is up to let me know he wants foood.

    Something coming through is a good sign, especially if it has some consistency.
    If you only gave him a 'drop' of Gasx you can give him more. I normally dose at about .15 to .2 ml, which is like 3 or 4 'drops'.
    It sounds like you are doing great and we are progressing.
    He may get more grumpy and noisy as he gets closer to pooping a lot.

    Still no poop

    Gave him about .2 ml of gas x with some warm water.

    I can tell he wants to poop but it just wonít come out.

    Would you consider taking him to a veterinarian? I don't know how much it would cost or whether the vet would be able to alleviate the bloat/constipation but there is a wildlife-friendly vet in Raleigh, NC-Dr. Dan Johnson. www.avianandexotic.com

    He is well fed and strong.
    We won't push the water diet long enough get anywhere near starvation.

    If you have gotten any more poop put of him... start introducing diluted formula at the ratio of 25% Esbilac, 75% water.
    (This basically breaks down to 1 part Esbilac powder.. and 11 parts water)
    The taste should help you to get him to drink it.

    Later this evening (in about four or five hours) change to 1 part Esbilac powder.. and 5 parts water.

    What is this dark coloration in his tummy?
    Iíve been massaging it & sometimes it will move to the other side..

    He has only pooped one more time just recently, since this morning. Not a lot.

    I will give him one more feeding of water in about an hour. After that I think Iím going to heavily dilute some formula for him

    It may be a pressure point, like an air bubble, if it moves around.

    Start introducing diluted formula at the ratio of 25% Esbilac, 75% water.

    His bloat is getting worse. Like really bad. Iím so concerned.. he doesnít even want me to help him pee or try to poop. He squirms every time I try to stimulate him..

    Everything is getting worse; not better.

    I am calling some people to see if they can jump in with more ideas on this.
    How is he reacting to the diluted formula? Does he still act hungry?
    How often are you feeding and stimulating right now?
