2 months old baby constipated

PLS help. My Grandson is 2 months old, he is on 150ml S26 Gold and has approx 5 - 6 bottles per day. He is very constipated at the moment and his stools are green. The day before it was a bit slimey but yesterday it was just a hard ball. What can my daughter give him for constipation at that age?

Thanks in advance for the advice

You cannot give anything for constipation in such a young baby. You need to find the cause of his constipation. this is probably the formula. The options are to change over to either Lactogen1 or to Novalac IT.

Hello Geraldine, we had the same problem with our 3 week old baby we had her on Lactogen1. We changed her to Novalac IT 1 Bottle a day and the rest of the bottles Novalac 1. It works wonders she is now such a happy baby and no more constipation. The Novalac IT is specially for constapation. Good Luck you will not be sorry. You get the Novalac at Baby City or Clicks
