Infant Care (up to 18 months old) Board Index

It is the formula and it doesnt matter what kind. Breastmilk is thinner and easily absorb by the baby's stomach while formula is thicker and leaves a residue. My son is also on Enfamil with iron and he had 2 episodes of constipation when he was 1 month old. It was aweful, his face was really red, crying while he try to expel that hard poop wont just come out. I could almost feel his pain and want to take it away from him but I was helpless.

I gently massage his belly with baby oil and flex his knees towards his belly.
Everything came out and he was a happy baby.

Now I am on alert, if he doesnt poop in 24 hours, I massage his belly very gently or breastfeed him. Doc said, I can give 1 oz water in between feeding but my baby dont like water.

He is now 3 months old and has had no constipation problem since then.
