My son was born at 27 weeks & 4 days on 10/23/13 weighing 2 lbs 2 oz... I was able to bring him home 1/3/14 and since getting home he has been constipated and the doctor told me to use a thermometer to stimulate it and if that didn't work to use a suppository I have tried both and at first the thermometer worked but now since yesterday it has not worked and neither has the suppository...
