Lil man (12 mths) is terribly constipated. This is the 2nd time now that it's been bad. I stopped BF @ 7 mths and put him on karicare imunocare as that's what my daughter had with no problems. Then when he got constipated we put him on novolac constipation which helped a little bit but I don't really want to pay $27 a tin. So now he's on NAN HA toddler which is much nicer to drink and he seems to like it.
Anyway this is day 5 or 6 of constipation. Mch have said to give him 6ml of undiluted prune juice twice a day and parachoc (paraffin oil) approx 15ml once a day. We've also started a quality dose of probiotics once a day. All this we started 3 days ago.
So....how long should this take to work? The last 3 nights he's been in a lot of pain and very grizzly. Constantly trying to push poo out with no result is horrible to watch.
What do I do now?
He drinks loads of water, is just starting to eat fruit and has weetbix with water every morning.
