I have a 3 month old who makes a bowel movement about 3 or 4 times a day. He has always been breast fed & we decided to start supplementing formula. Two days ago we gave him his first & only bottle of formula & ever since he has not made a bowel movement.
I called my doctor office & the nurse told me to wait 24 hours, and if he is still constipated or has a hard bowel movement to give him karo syrup... But I've heard that it can be dangerous. I've also heard juice works, but he is only 3 months & I don't know if that's safe either. I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions?
