My Pediatrcian told me to give my 9 month old a tiny bit (1 tsp) of Miralax in 6-8 oz of expressed milk a day until we can get her a clean slate so to speak in terms of constipation. So I'm using this with doc approval. I'm breast feeding and I find it hard to express that much milk now 9 months into breast feeding. Can I put Miralax into her puréed food instead or will it not work as well? Any moms tried this?

I did call my pediatrician's office to ask a nurse and she said I could put 1 tsp into 4 oz instead of 6-8 oz. I could also dilute the milk up to 6 oz but didn't half to do that. This helps a little because it means I don't have to express 6 oz however, she couldn't really give me a confident yes or no in terms of putting it in food.

well if you can not get 6-8 oz of breast milk only use HALF of what he is recommending in 3-4oz of milk
