Q.

Constipated due to vitamin syrup?

I' ve started my little girl (10 months) on Creche guard last week. (1 ml for five days of the week). She was constipated last week and over the weekend as well, nothing else has changed in her diet. Could the cause be the syrup and if so, should I just continue or rather give her something else?

It does seem as if your baby has become constipated since being on the Creche Guard. Stop this and rather give her a probiotic such as Reuteri or Probiflora to boost her immunity.
