You need to relieve your baby's constipation so use an infant glycerine suppository once daily for 2 days to clear her.zzzzztry a special formula for constipated babies called Novalac IT. When you start off you will need to give altrenate feeds of NovalacIT and the Lactogen for 3 days and then only the Novalac IT from then onwards.

Hi Ron,

I had a similar problem with my daughter and when this happened i would give her 3-4 teaspoons of prune purity and it seemed to sort her tummy out!

Hope this helps. Good luck
