my son will be 8 months on the 23 of this month. We have had problems with his bowels since he was about 1 month old, when he was 2 months we took him to vanderbuilt in nashville, to see a GI specialist, and they ran all sorts of test on him and figured out he is allergic to the protien in milk so they put him on some hypoallerginic formula. and they put him on laxs. he was getting 10ml a day EVERYday. and see before going down there he was already getting 4 oz of juice a day adult juice NOT diluted, and karo syrup in ALL bottles, and it didn't help....well once they got him on the lax. he did good for about 3-4 months and starting in oct, we started to have problems again. it was getting hard again, and there are times he sounds and looks like he is trying to poop, his face gets red and eyes water, but when i go to change him nothing is there. SO i began him on his laxatives again and started giving him prune juice, he got a jar of prunes every morning, and karo syrup in all bottles, and that STILL didn't help, well i called his doc in vanderbuilt and they told me to try an enema, well i did and it worked great he went good for about 1-2 weeks after that, it was almost like he had a small blockage and the enema helped get it out. well now he is not going good again, we gave him an enema like 4 days ago, he went a little after getting it, then he went almost 3 days without having one, and today he had a very small one and it was hard, so he got a suppository, yea well the suppository still hasn't done anything. I just dont know what to do....he get juice, karo syrup, laxatives, suppositories, enemas, prunes, i mean everything and NOTHING is doing the trick, has anyone else had this problem with their child? What was the problem, and what did they do for them? Im so frustrated that i can't fix it for my baby!!!
