My twins turned 3 Months old on the 18th. My lil girl poops every day and doesnt struggle one bit, her brother on the other hand poops once every 3 days and struggles. His poop is very hard (kinda like playdoh that has been left out to dry). They are both fed Enfamil Gentlease (with rice cereal per DRS orders for spit up issues). My mother said to use Karo Syrup but after research i feel it might work but the company says not to use with infants) What else could i use to help him?
Any type of Karo Syrup is unsafe!! It is an outdated method that most doctors advocate against. Karo syrup (ANY kind) CAN harbor botulism spores which are DEADLY in infants! It is never worth the risk with so many other options available.
I agree with the PP about the Iron in the formula. Perhaps try giving a tiny bit of cut prune juice and see if that helps get it all moving.
