It is possible that your baby has a mild form of lactose intolerance. If he is changed to a soya formula or to a lactose free formula he will become more constipated.If he has a stool every 2 days that is normal, so you can either keep him on the Lactogen1 or change him to Novalac IT. Follow the instructions carefully if you decide to put your baby on NovalacIT.
