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. ...

Acid Reflux & Gas--AAAAHHHH!!!!

My 2 1/2 month old has always been fussy in the evening and very gassy. However,lately he's really struggling with breastfeeding as he's constantly pulling off, coughing, spitting up, etc--all of the text book descriptions of acid reflux. We tried Prevacid and it didn't work and now we're trying out Zantac. I also really watch my diet and make sure that I don't have any of the agitating foods. Anyone have any advice??? Anything I'm missing???

Formula and Constipation

My question is everyone's experience with formula and if their babies get constipation. My first son got constipated and then blood in stools. Now my second son has been constipated off and on since we brought him home 3 weeks ago. I currently breatsfeed for 10 minutes or more on each breast and then supplement with 3-4 ounces of formula (I do not produce enough milk to exclusively breastfeed - my 3 sisters have all had same problem) When we brought him home - 3 days later we had to give him a suppository. We have done the tummy rubs...

Fun with Pooping and Prune Juice

My one year old son has had a hard time pooping lately. It is awful to watch, he squats and then screams like it REALLY hurts to go and his poop is really hard. We just finished formula a few weeks ago and he is now on whole milk. He gets a lot of fruit and meat and wheat bread in his diet, but I'm wondering if he needs more fiber? We gave him a few ounces of prune juice this morning to see if that helps, but I'm not sure how much and how often to give it to him. I'm desperate to relieve the poop pains -- I really think it hurts when...
