my 2month old son isn't pooping and am worried at first I wasn't getting sufficient flow of milk so I started formula #1 called similac that used to work a little but he still got constipation so I switched to lactogen but every time he drink it he vomits s I don't know if to continue lactogen or back. similac d both of them has lots of iron ore

Well then its not constipation maybe he is having colic ? My daughter had colic between 4-8 weeks old it lasted about 1 hr everyday for 3 weeks and always around the same time which was at night . It could be the formula as well because my daughter was very gassy and wouldn't poop normal at first with similac. If he does cry I would take him to his pediatrician this is just from my experience. Hope I helped if any more questions let me know I'm quite new to the site so if I don't respond its because I'm trying to figure it out still.

I'm a first time mom too and 18 I'm not too sure how accurate my daughter's pediatrician was but she told me that it doesn't matter if the baby isn't pooping for 1 or 2 days or even just poops once a day that its NOT constipation, constipation is when your baby is having solid stool and possibly gets upset trying to poop or cries when he does poop
Not sure if that was clear but that's what my pediatric told me, hope it helps
In regards to the formula my daughter had a hard time adjusting to similac it would make her gassy but not constipated. I didn't try lactogen so don't know what to say about that 1
Hope I helped :)
