my 6 week was constipated then we switched formula from enfamil newborn to enfamil prosobee to enfamil nutrimagen wich was kinda ok then to enfamil sensative tummies. she started breaking out in a rash on her face but we thought it had to do with perfumes or colognes bur it wasn,t. with the sensative tummies she is able to go poop with but there is a rash spreading . what do we do?

  • Stop switching formulas and take her to the dr. Constapation and rashes are both signs of food allergies.

  • Talk to the babies doc. Maybe you can try Similac. Maybe it isn't even the formula. There is medicine to take for constipation instead of switching her formula. yeah, I would talk to doc.

  • Have you considered breast feeding? 6 weeks isn't too late to start relactating

  • Talk to ur pedi. We had to switch formulas like that due to his excessive vomiting and we tried like 5 different formulas before finding Good Start Soy. Anyways. I'd say the rash may not even be the formula..but it very well could be. Noah got it from his bath lotion and it wasnt apart of his problem with formula. Or she could be allergic to a specific formula..like Noah was lol. Talk to your doctor and eliminate . good luck

  • If relaction isn't an option for you, consult the doctor. Maybe even a pediatric gastroenterologist. Some of the issues MIGHT be from switching so much, I'm not sure.

  • Also, please tell me how YOU define constipation (in infants). How often is baby moving bowels, and what is the stool like? Important info. Constipation is infants is defined as passing dry, hard, pellet like stools. It's NOT lack of bowel movement (for a period of time), it's NOT struggling to go. It's passing dry, hard, pellet like stool. :) Just FYI
