Q.

Could lo be constipated

Hi Doc

My lb is 10 months old whenever his tummy goes out he cries and pulls himself stiff. His stools are like play dough and he always makes small little ones about every 15-30mins and afterwards a biggish size one.

It does sound as if your baby is constipated. Change his formula to a casein-rich formula such as Lactogen2. Make sure that he has adequate amounts of fruit and fibre in his diet and he should also have water to drink.
