Question: My son will be 3 months old next week. We were trying a new formula because he has a spit up problem and the one we tried made him very constipated. He hasnt passed a BM in almost 3 days. What can I do to help him with his constipation? We will no longer be using the formula that made him constipated.

Changing formulas will constipate infants. Thats why you should pick one and stick to it. My daughter had the same issue. She was breast fed and then I wasnt able to continue so I started her on formula. She got constipated and because her bum wasnt used to pushing out more solid types of waste it was too tight to get it out. SOOOOOOOOOO I took her to the doctors and all he did was lube up the area and poke a pinky finger in the rectum and OUT IT ALLL CAME. I couldnt watch because it made me sick as hell to see that but it worked. After that she was fine. *NOTE* do NOT give any sugars mixed with water because it doesnt work.

First of all, how long has it been since her last bowel movemement? If it's only been 2 or 3 days, she may not be constipated. A lot of formula fed babies have less frequent bowel movements. Constipation is characterized by hard, pellet like poop. She may cry a lot or strain during her bowel movements. I would stop the cereal in the bottles for now. Actually cereal in the bottle can be a choking hazard, but since I'm not the mommy here I'll let you make that choice. Try giving her some apple juice or some prune juice (cut with some water or mixed in her formula). They also have glycerine suppositories that stimulate the bowels and are non-medicated. If all else fails, call your baby's pediatrician. I hope she has a good poop soon :) I know how miserable it can be to watch your baby be so uncomfortable.

Before you give your baby anthing, try taking his temprature in the bum. Put some vasoline on the tip. It will stimulate him and make him poo within 15 mins or so. I think this is a good thing to try first. It has always works for my little ones the few times we has this problem.

•  Get her some exercise. If your baby's a crawler, encourage her to do a few laps. If she's not crawling yet, try pumping her legs: While she's lying on her back, gently move her legs in a forward, circular motion as if she were pedaling a bicycle. •  Massage your baby's belly. Measure three finger-widths below her navel and apply gentle but firm pressure with your fingertips. Press until you feel a firmness or mass. Maintain gentle but constant pressure for about three minutes. •  If you feed your baby formula, ask her doctor about switching to a different brand. Some babies are less constipated on soy formula. And sometimes adding a teaspoon of Karo corn syrup to the formula also does the trick. •  Switch from rice cereal to barley or oat cereal, or add pureed fruits or vegetables to her regular cereal, once your baby is ready for them. Read about what foods to introduce when. •  Once your baby is eating a variety of solid foods, ask her doctor if you can boost her fiber intake by adding a teaspoon of bran to her cereal. Cut down on constipating foods like rice, bananas, and cooked carrots, and try mixing her cereal with a little bit of apple or prune juice or a few tablespoons of pureed prunes, apricots, or pears to help loosen her bowel movements. •  Increase the amount of fluid your baby drinks to help keep her stools soft. If your baby is older than 2 months, start by giving her 1 ounce of prune juice diluted with 1 ounce of water, twice a day. As her constipation improves, you can cut back. Talk with the doctor first if your baby is 2 months old or younger. •  Talk to your baby's doctor about treatment options. Ask about using an over-the-counter stool softener to make bowel movements more comfortable for your baby, but never give your baby a laxative without her doctor's approval. The doctor may also suggest you try a glycerin suppository if your baby is severely constipated. The suppository will stimulate the rectum and help her pass a stool. While using a suppository occasionally is fine, don't do it on a regular basis, since your baby could wind up relying on them to have a bowel movement. •  If your baby is passing such hard, dry stools that she tears the delicate skin near the opening of her anus (you may be able to see these tears, known as anal fissures, or a little blood), you can apply some aloe vera lotion to the area to help it heal. Be sure to mention the tears to your baby's doctor.
