Concentrate on Constipation Issue
by: Heather ;-)


First, I apologize it has taken me a while to respond to your post. Somehow this one missed my desk!

If your baby is struggling with constipation after adding formula, speak to your doctor about switching to a different kind (from cow's to soy-based or vice versa) or adding a little prune juice to help.

The best way to get him to gain weight is to follow your doctor's advice. You didn't mention any spitting up or reflux problems, so I'm assuming that's normal.

At this point, would concentrate on trying to help his constipation improve. A constipated belly won't feel like eating.

If you missed it, review my article on ways to relieve constipation for additional help.

As always, feel free to write back if necessary,

Thanks Heather! Your Milestone eBook is SO detailed and so correct. My son is doing all or most of the things and many are not mentioned in the usual books/sites. Great job and keep it up!

My baby refused all bottles until you showed me the MAM bottle. Thank you so much for the recommendation. I wouldn't have known about them if not for your website.
