my baby's doctor gave him vitamins with iron because he's breastfed. (he's also 10 weeks old) Now he's constipated. He hasn't gone at all today and just a little bit yesterday. He's usually an everyday pooper. What can I do to get him to poop?Answer Question

NEVER NEVER NEVER use Karo. Karo is a botulism risk which can be deadly in infants.
As you have seen from the answers waiting is your best answer. My guy would go 6 - 9 days before pooping. It can be very normal for a breastfed baby. When baby does go poop as long as it is not hard pellets baby is not constipated.
