How we cured our daughter's constipation

Hello! Ever since our daughter stopped nursing, she struggled with constipation. She was close to a year, so we started with formula, but had to try a number of brands before finding that the "pre-digested" one was best. Over the course of the next couple years, we saw a gasteroentologist, added fiber, reduced "bulky" foods, put her on Miralax, and so on! But it was only when we decided to give her chocolate milk (to try to fatten her up a bit!) that we realized that dairy was the problem. She did not test positive for lactose intolerance, but swapping out cows milk made a huge difference. I hope this saves at least one mom out there a year or more of dietary troubleshooting!
