Im starting to worry about my little girl, let me explain a bit more
since she was born shes always had a problem having a poo, she was breastfed for the first 4 weeks. then my milk dried up and didnt return so we put her on sma gold, we found she was still always hungry so we put her onto sma white for hungry babies. this seems to satisfy her hunger.
but a few weeks later she was screaming in pain when she needed a poo we took her to the dr's and they have given her some lactalose, again this has helped but she started having pains again when needing a poo, so we took her to the hospital who said she was fine.
Its now day 2 almost day 3 without her having a poo put still the screaming continues ive tried to help her go, massaging her tummy, giving her water, even giving her cartons of sma as im told it has a slight laxative in it.
but still no poo i hate seeing my little girl in pain, and she even cries with it. shes normally a once a day baby.
should i take her back up the hospital. im worried incase shes so constipated she cant get it out, or there is a blockage shes 3 months old
just got back from the dr's who again asure me she is fine, just struggling to poo and when she finally does go im to collect a specimen :-/
im begining top lose faith in these dr's they never tell you exactly whats going on etc
