Q.

Constipation

I just want to reply on my question on the 3rd, regarding my 6 week old being on Isomil and being constipated. You asked why he is on Isomil. I have put him on Isomil as people say the milk formulas gives them flem on the chest (slym op die bors) I don' t want to battle with that. What do you think should I do.

Take your baby off Isomil immediately.It is causing constipation. There is no truth to the belief that milk formulas cause excess mucous in babies.

Hi Mommy

My doc put my 6 month old on isomil also because she is suffering with terrible reflux. Ever since she has been on isomil she has been TERRIBLY constipated. have tried everything and nothing has worked. Am now putting her back on to S26 but still have the reflux problem.
Hope everything works out!
