Hello Ladies, my little boy will be 7 weeks on Friday! He is a very content baby he does suffer from acid reflux, but he has prescribed medication for it. His problems are that he has not been able to have a normal bowel movement, he has to be on a laxitive and still has problems. He started off on Enfamil with Iron, then went to Nutramigen Now he has been on Prosobe for 5 days he has NOT spit up at all since the switch,, he does not seem to be fussy like he was when he was eating. BUT he still is having problems having a bowel movement any suggestions would be GREATFUL!!
Do you mean he is having hard firm stools or is going less frequently? True constipation is not an issue of going infrequently, it is the consistency of the stool Overuse of laxatives can cause dependency on them, so please be very careful. If it is hard and dry stools, try finding a formula with less iron.
