Similac Advance Early Shield and Very Loose Explosive Bowel Movements

Hi, my 4 month old daughter has been on similac early shield since the end of november. First she was on the premixed and now(for about 2-3 weeks) has been on the powder. Ever since I switched her to early shield, she has very very loose poop, so bad that I once had to cut her onesies off to prevent all the poop from getting in her hair. I would say that at least 2 times a week, the poop is so bad that it goes up her back and stains the clothes. She takes the formula very well so i don't want to switch but these loose poops are...

14-Month-old Is Constipated

My 14-month-old son is constipated a few times a week. I have been in contact a few times with the pediatrician's office and am doing everything I can. This started when he was switched over from formula to whole milk. Also, he does not drink much water. I am always forcing it on him, but he won't drink much. I give him prunes or blueberries to eat, make his baby cereal with prune juice, give him whole grain foods, etc. I also water down his milk and occasionally put Karo syrup in his milk. He still has problems with constipation. ...

Switching from Similac to Enfamil (Add On)

Green Poop & Blood in Poop of Breastfed Baby

Hi All- I have a 4 1/2 month old who has had issues with green, mucous poops. Once, he had visible blood in his diaper also. The pediatrician said that the most common cause for this was an intolerance to the dairy in my diet. She tested his poo for occult blood, & it was positive. It's been 16 days, and I have eliminated all dairy products from my diet. He seems a little better - sometimes the poo is yellowish, but there are still lots of green episodes. I was wondering if anyone else has had this happen, & what they had to do to...
