View Full Version : Help! Constipation after immunisations
My bub is 10 weeks old and had his first needles on Tuesday. Ever since he hasnt done a poo - he seems a tad grizzlier but I dont know if this has anything to do with it.
Has this happened to anyone else?
I was thinking about putting some sugar in water for him.
Hi Carls *waves*
Is he brestfed or bottlfed?
Anyway....if he is brestfed, then it is extrememly unlikely that he is constipated. It is normal for them to go up to 2 weeks without "going." My DS#1 went once every 10 days from about 10 weeks until 6 months - it was great! So, it must be unrelated and just a coincidence.....he might just be a bit grizzly as his body adjusts to having the vaccine - I htink that is quite normal:)
If he's bottlefed, then 'm not sure but I am sure smoeone else will come along soon with some info! In that case, disregard the above hehe! I personally dont think that sugar would be a great idea for a young bubs:)
If he is bottle fed, try adding a level teaspoon of malted milk powder to his bottles for a few days to see if it makes any difference....tends to make them a bit softer and go a bit more often...like frenchstar said, if he is breastfed, disregard above!!!
Hope he's feeling better soon......
Thanks for the advice - he is breastfed.
I put some sugar in water in a dropper for him, and i have seen very little poos in his nappy now. Lets hope this gets things moving!
