My 4 month old little girl is on her 3rd different type of formula. First she couldn't digest the similac advanced, then it was the sensitive. Now I put her on Enfamil gentlease and shes been doing great! Much more happier. I just started giving her rice cereal and now were back to being constipated. I'm thinking it's the rice, but now I don't know what to do! Can someone please help!? I'm one stressed out mommy.

Yes, the cereal could be constipating. At 4 mos. she doesn't really need it. But if you want to keep trying, cut back on it for awhile, or mix it with a small amount of juice.

A midwife suggested to me 100% organic apple juice watered down with cooled boiled water. 1 part apple juice to 3 parts water. This is very gentle on the stomach and gets things moving. I can vouch it does work.
