My bub is only a week old and for the majority of the week he's been constipated... each day getting worse and screaming the high pitched "i have a pain" scream!! so upsetting!!!
we tried everything we could think of and read about - bicycle legs, warm baths, sugar water, tummy massage... we went to the chemist and got coloxyl drops... nothing worked, we ended up taking him to hospital and they examined him and gave us the name of another 'stool loosener' lactalose.... after giving him that once last night, he had one good poo this morning, slept for the good part of the night and all day today and now he's screaming again... pulling his legs up and has the same problem and it hasn't even been 24 hours.
he's a formula fed baby on S26 gold - newborn... can anyone suggest any other ideas? should i try change formula now? if so, which one would be good? is there anything else i can do? dh and i are pulling our hair out, we just can't settle him :-(
