Q.

Constipation

My baby is 18 months old, on ARV's and on NAN 2

He should not be on NAN2 at his age but should be drinking ordinary full cream cow's milk. The ARVs may be causing the constipation. Make sure that he has lots of fruit and fibre in his diet and see that he drinks diluted fruit juice and water every day.
