Your baby has not benefited from the change to Infacare LF. In fact his constipation is still a big problem.It is never a good idea to keep changing formulas but you do need to find a formula which will suit your baby.His constipation is now the main problem. You can try Novalac IT which is specially formulated for constipated babies but contains lactose and see if can tolerate this formula. He may remain quite windy but at least his constipation should be relieved.
