I just weaned my 7 month daughter of bf, and now she is so constipated that she screams bloody murder everytime she has a bowel movement. I have tried prune juice, blueberries, prunes, everything!!! HELP HELP!!!

I would also suggest trying to get her to re-latch. Even some breastmilk will be MUCH better for her digestive system than none! It's a supply and demand system - if you nurse more often your supply will increase - as you cut back the feeds, your supply declines. Have you tried Domperidone? Your doctor can prescribe it to increase your supply.

That happened with my son and it turned out he needed prosobee formula. He was lactose intolerant. We tried him on 5 different formulas before that one and it worked great! I was nervous he would always be lactose intolerant but he was over it by the time he was 1. I would definitely talk to your doctor about it.
