Hi Doc,

Constipation not getting any better, His cramps are back, he turns and kicks, when i touch his stomach its so hard.

He turned 6months on saturday his still having his porridge and vegetables purities (he doesnt want fruits ones- I noticed he doesnt want anything sweet) He does drink 100-125mls of water.

I don' t know if he' s allergic to Soya milk or what, i dont want to change the formula again but I have to change to No2 formula atleast the right one this time.

The rash on his abdomen, could it be allergy ?

Can you recommend a good paeditrician in Pretoria

It would be best for you to take your baby to be seen by an expert paediatric allergist. Prof Robin Green of the Dept of Paediatrics at the Pretoria Academic Hospital is recommended.
