Q.

Constipated 8 months old

Hi Doc

Our 8 month old baby girls constipated is becoming more frequent now. It is now the 3rd time in approx a month that she is constipated. Is it just the normal prune/pear juice and water intake that we should try and increase?

She is on NAN 2 - do you think it can be NAN and if so, should we change to some other brand?

thanks for your help or anyone in the forum that may know of something that can help...

It would certainly be worthwhile changing your baby's formula to one that is better to use for constipated babies. Try her on Lactogen2. Let me know if this does not help.
