After my son's 4-month old appointment our pediatrician said we could start him on rice cereal. We mixed a tablespoon of rice cereal with 6 tablespoons of formula and gave it to him -- and he loved it. However, it has now been 2 1/2 days since he's gone to the bathroom, and he' s usually an every day kind of baby. We've been giving him Karo syrup every 3-4 days anyway because he's always had trouble since he was 2 weeks old with constipation. If he doesn't go by tomorrow should I call the doctor, or maybe wait it out a bit more? He's happy, not fussy, and his stomach isn't hard at all. I'm just concerned, but I don't want to freak out if it's just taking longer for his system to get used to it. He's probably just too young for the rice. Anyone else have this problem?
