Hi, I really need some advice, my 7 month son hasn't been popping by himself since he was 1 month old, at 3 months I started giving him lactulose, ive had to increase his dose many times, he is currently using 4 tsp a day!! What is the usual amount for a child his age? He is formula fed and I've tried many diff formulas, some days he still won't go, and wakes up middle of the night screaming!! After one day of not pooping!!! I've been to the doctors soo many times, they just don't seem to do anything!! Any ideas what I should or could do???

Go to a different doctor. You should not have to give your son anything to help him poop. There could be something wrong with his intestance or his digestive system or something. Something in his body is not working right if he can't go to the bathroom without the help from something. My best advice is to find a new doctor, one who will listen to your concerns and do everything possible to help him.
