It is possible that your baby has become constipated since starting on solids as you say she has only recently started being constipated.It would still be worthwhile seeing if she improves on another formula more suited to babies with constipation as a first step. Try her on Lactogen2 instead of the NAN. If her constipation continues please write in again.
