OK, Brent is squirming and having a hard time. I have recently changed his formula from Enfamil Lipil with Iron to Similac Advance with Iron about 4 days ago. Unfortunately I can't change him back because that is all that WIC will buy...(Stupid, I know) They said that he shouldn't have any problems because they are both equal. He had diarrhea for the first two days after being really gassy but now his stomach is hard, and he's still gassy.. He has been burping and tooting, so those things are working fine.. I've tried the "bicycle", pushing his legs up, and massaging under the belly button and the tailbone.... Is there any else I can try with my 3 week old constipated baby? I have heard about the Karo Syrup but I really don't feel comfortable giving him that yet, and I have heard different views on it, so I'm kinda iffy about it. Is it OK to give a 3 week old the prune juice and water?? I've called my doctor and they are no help, all they ever say is that you have to come in, and we only have one car, that my husband has right now, so it's not possible today!
