My doc told me to try mineral oil to help my lo to poop. Has anyone else tried this? I have been giving it to her for 3 days no and have seen no improvement, i think i might try something else

I haven't tried it but i have heard it works.  How old is LO?  Eating solids yet?

My sister had a bowel obstruction.  It wasn't completely blocked so they choose to try Mineral oil first to see if it would lessen it, or remove it.....it worked, it took awhile(and by awhile I mean, over a year....it was a long drawn out process but the surgery risk was to much because it wasn't causing any health concerns at the time).  I would just watch how much you give and how often, because once she starts...it may be a bit before she stops.  Good luck!

Yes, I had to use Mineral oil for my daughter. It worked pretty quickly. It worked better for her than the Miralax-

The only problem with using mineral oil is it keeps nutrients from entering the body so I wouldn't recommend it over a large period of time.
