  • If your formula feeding maybe you should try a new formula, if your breastfeeding you could try cutting out dairy for awhile, or anything else that might cause you to have gas.

  • Gas drops for gas. Call your pediatrician too. If you are formula feeding they make formula esp. for gassy babies also.

  • I would try a different formula. Gas drops will only help if she has gas, not of she has to poop!

  • My ped told me white grape juice works for constipation. Just dillued it with a little water.

  • The reason juice makes kids poop is because it's not easily digestible and causes diarrhea. My son had a problem with constipation when he was 0-3 months also, so when he was having problems pooping, my doc suggested putting a thermometer in his hiney for a few seconds. He called it something like "anal stimulation". lol I didn't enjoy it at all, but it made him poop within 30 seconds! And I didn't have to use medications or juice or anything else that was sugary!

  • 1 tbsp. light kayro syrup to 4 oz. of warm water has been helping my 11 week old who has been straining to go to the bathroom so hard and fussy because he can't get it out. Let him her drink about 2 oz.
