Your baby is constipated due to the formula. You need to change him to either Novalac IT or Lactogen1. If your baby is very constipated the Novalac IT will be better for him. For the first 2 days on Novalac IT, give this formula in second bottle and the in between feeds can continue to be the S26. After 2 days he should only drink the Novalac IT.After about 2 weeks on the Novalac It change him to the regular Novalac formula.
