Q.

8.5 month old constipated

Good day Doc
My boy since last week gets constipated often, i give him Prunes Purity or Prune juice to help with this but yesterday he would cry so much when passing stool, is there a lotion i can use to help him heal or should i include something on his diet to help with this?He is currently on Purity 3rd foods and Cereal. Once in a while a cook butternut,carrots and gem squash for him.And he is on Isomil 2(this for 3 weeks now, was on Nan HA 2 previously).
Thank you kindly

The reason for your son's constipation is the Isomil soya formula. Change back to the NAN HA 2.Use a single infant glycerine suppository to relieve his present constipation.
