Q.

Constipation problem

I have a 3 and half months old girl,i recently started feeding her formula milk (Isomil) ,but my problem is that she is constantly constipated and it worries me because you can see that she is uncomfortable.I sometimes give her milk of magnesia.What or which formula can i use to stop constipation.

Isomil seems to be causing your baby to be constipated.Why is she not on a cow's milk formula? Try her on NAN HA and see if she improves.
