Anyone have problems with constipation when switching your LO to whole milk from breast milk ?? I've tried prune juice, syrups, suppositories ....any other ideas !? Anyone switch to sweet acidophilus ?

He goes every morning usually but the last few mornings he strains and cries out in pain trying to go. So with whole milk bottle I've heard to mix a little water with it?? Thanks for info (:

How long has it been since your LO went poop? Keep with the prune juices and the fruits, but also allow his body time to have them work. It usually takes a few days before you see results. Also make sure you are not giving too much milk in his day. Usually 12 ounces of milk is all they need. The rest should be water or juice.....I would not give too much juice though once he becomes regular stick with about 4 ounces of juice in a day.
