my 7 year old has ibs with constipation,as well as other GI problems. and we have miralax, i actually don't like to give it to him, he says it makes him feel funny and gives him gas pains.
now i dont know how a baby is going to do, but i guess if you don't have a choice, ya know.
if you are nursing, one od the peds told me to take a stool softner myself, and some gets passed through my milk. so when ben seems to not go for a few days thats what i do.
can yoru babe eat babyfood prunes? or take sips of prune juice? imo laxatives don't help fix the problem all they do is alleviate the symptoms, then its a cycle it will just happen again and again.
oh kids with pooping troubles.... its the pits!
