Your baby's constipation is due to him being on a formula. Change his formula to a casein rich formula such as Lactogen 1. Before starting the new formula use just one infant glycerine suppository so that your baby will be able to pass the constipated stool. Start the new formula as soon as possible. If your baby remains constipated once he is on the Lactogen 1 formula, please let me know and I will advise you further.
