You need to put your baby on a formula that will not cuase such severe constipation. You can try him on Lactogen1 first and see if this helps which it should. If not I suggest that your next step should be to put him on Novalac IT [please note that it must be the IT form of Novalac]. Do not give your baby any medicines or water at this stage.
