Q.

Pegicol

My 6 week old baby suffers from constipation, and my paed prescribed Pegicol today (1/4 teaspoon 3 times a day). How do I give this to the baby, can I mix the powder into her feed (she drinks rooibos & chamomile tea with Novalac AR)

I would rather suggest changing your baby's formula either to the regular Novalac,or to Lactogen
