Baby formula??

Well my daughter was born on the 21st and she has been drinking Similac with iron. But now she is very constipated and i see her straining a lot as well. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions on what formula I should go out and buy? Tried looking for formulas without iron and there are like none! Tried moving her legs up towards her chest and moving them as if she was peddling a bicycle..that didn't work either. Does anyone know what I can do to help stop this constipation?  Please help I feel bad seeing her struggle every day and night

I believe we used a Nestle formula that came without iron.

You should talk to her doctor about miralax.

I use similac sensitive because my sweetie was constipated from the advanced similac. My dr also said she can take miralax so I would call her pediatrician. I hope this helps
