You have a real problem as your son will not take the Dupalac.You should change his formula. He would be best on a regular full cream milk now.Use an infant glycerine suppository once daily for 3 days. Try and give him lots of water to drink and any fruit juice he will drink, also foods with lots of roughage. If he does not improve he will need to be seen by a paediatrician.
