Anna Grace is just 5 weeks old and she's had problems with her bowel movements since week 2.
I tried breastfeeding at first but couldn't find any support to help me, not even the nurses at the hospital knew what they were doing, so after a week I gave up. Bad me.
So we started her on Emfamil Lipil.. started noticing she was getting very very fussy and bowel movements stopped. This happened with my 21 month old when she was born too. We switched from gentleease,ar, and now prosobee. AG has acid reflux just like her sister.. so we started her on Axid 15mg 1cc twice day.
But she's still forcing herself to go number 2. When she does, which is only once a day if we're lucky, it's hard as a rock and not that much.
Has anyone had this problem and have any success with anything ??
Forgot to mention, she has cereal in her bottles for her reflux too, could that be doing it?
