    Default Formula to ease constipation?

    I weaned my DS off the breast about a month ago now, the first formula he took to was Heinz Nurture Stage 2 (He's 9 months). But he has been suffering severe constipation since being on it so i'm wanting to change his formula. Is there one that anybody could recommend that helped ease their bub with similiar issues? His formula isn't a "Gold" formula so I thought it would be easier on his tummy but apparently not.

    Thanks in advance

    We had this problem with a lot of formulas, the only ones that didn't were novalac and Karicare. DD wasn't huge on the flavour of novalac (we used the reflux one and they do a specific constipation formula too). Karicare has just changed their formula and we are having issues now. Unfortunately it can be very hit and miss with some babies... have you tried some natural remedies? Brown sugar in water or prunes are great.

    Novalac Constipation - a bit more expensive but it seriously works!
