    Default Mixed feeding, worried constipation?

    Hey guys need some advice/thoughts, i breastfed for 7 weeks and now am weaning bub on to formula, S26 Gold, at the moment he has formula every second feed. Only started this yesterday and he usually does one poo a day but he hasnt today but seems to be trying to. Just dont know if i should wait it out and see if it gets easier or try a different formula?

    Gold formulas are notorious for causing constipation. I bf my babies but have heard good things about bellamys

    I give my now almost 4 week old s26 gold formula top ups and no constipation issues here. but every bub is different, try something else to see if that works.

    I mixed fed my first she was on S26 Gold she had no problems.

    Mine who was being fed less and less formula about this age started getting constipated, would go 10d btw poos. Even though I started laxatives by a few days without poo, lasted until we started solids, which I brought forward to 15w.

    just got a tin of bellamys organic which we will give ds tonight (he's previously been having s26 gold). hoping it agrees with him.
