Hi may i please have a post :).
Hey mums need some tips and tricks of the trade. Have a 6 1/2 month old who battles constipation daily since starting solids (purees). She is still breastfed. Refuses to take a bottle so brown sugar and water dsnt help as cant get enough into her. Coloxyl dsnt do much. Sometimes i stimulate her bowel with the old cue tip it works but it doesnt soften her BM. Only thing that works is prune juice…but as she wont drink it every day its not working well either…i put it straight in her breaky but is no way near as effective as when she used to drink it with water. 🙁 i massage belly everything..am now onto trying parraffin oil in her food but it seems to be a debatable method for infants.
Any1 had a similar situation??? I just want a way to soften her BM! As its been days now since shes had a decent 1 and 1 that isnt rock hard. Doc wont give suppository basically until she has rock hard tummy and is in *obvious * distress. -.-……. any mummys had this issue? What helped ur little one ? So hard as she dsnt take bottles n alot of treatment requires she drinks.
Thanks so much sorry for long post.
