15mnth old tummy not going out

Hi Doc

My 15month old boy''s tummy has not gone out properly for the past week and a half, it went out very little over the weekend, it was soft.
He is drinking water and doesn''t seem to be irritable from not pooing. Previously when i gave him full cream yoghurt or the parmalat baby milk his tummy would go out frequently but not now.
Please help.

It does appear that your baby is constipated.Use an infant glycerine suppository one a day for two days. Make sure that your baby is on a good mixed diet with lots of fruit in his diet. He should drink water and also have dilute fruit juice once daily.Do not give him any cheese to eat.Also make sure that he eats food that is rich in fibre.He did well on the Parmalat First Growth milk so it would be a good idea to give it to him again.
