I wondering if anyone else have had this problem I have been breast feeding and love it however my child been not able to poop without help I have let him go for 5 to 6 days and had to stimulate for the last couple of weeks. I was instructed by the doctor to give him a stool softener to get him to go to the bathroom. I tried the stool softener in the bottle with the breast milk did not have a change. I recently was unable to express enough milk and tried the soy milk for the baby with the stool softener and the baby is going like a champ. Has anyone else had a problem with breast milk constipating the baby?
