Hi there
My baby (Paige) is 10 months old now and everytime she cuts a tooth i noticed that she gets constipated and a bit of nappy rash. It would usually last for maybe 2 -4 days max.
We have used the lacson and sepositries(excuse the spelling) in the past and it' s helped her with the constipation to a degree. But for the past week now she has been suffering with the constipation, when she does however pass a stool if hard and she cries non stop when she has a poop.
We have been giving her of the lacson but nothing seems to be helping her.
She has been pressing but there nothing thats coming out.
Please can anyone advise me on what i can do to help her get some relief.

My 8 month old baby has been on Pegicol almost since birth and it is the only thing that helps her. If I take her off it go back to square 1, try it, its the best - Cindy is right! I agree!

Take your baby to the doctor, there is an amazing product on the market called pegicol, you can only get it with a prescription but it is really the best on the market. I have tried almost all the products on the market and this one has given the best result and caused the least amount of pain for my child as it does not giive them cramps and it works fast

I haven' t been in this situation before but won' t prune juice maybe do the trick? Someone also once told me the Duphelac helps for this. My sister used Milk Of Magnecia when her daugter had constipation.
