Paediatrician

It is unusual for a child's constipation not to respond to Lacson syrup. Have you changed your son's formula recently? If you have then change over to Parmalat First growth milk. Continue to give him lots of water and lots of fruit and fibre rich foods. Also give him Duphalac Liquid 5ml once daily for 10 days.If he does not respond to this treatment he must be seen by a paediatrician.
