well i started stephanie on Prosobee from Nutramigen 2 days ago but now she has trouble doing poop. she has to really strain and her face gets all red and purple. if she's like this on day 2 then i don't want to even imagine how she'll be in a week. should i try the gentle one or stick w/ soy? wut do you think ladies?

*i hate it when ppl say its easy to formula feed*

Thanx *Sharon* for my siggy

You can massage her tummy or take her temp rectally which can induce a BM. Those are just some things the doctor's office told me. I'd give it another day or two. It can take time to see results after a formula change. But if she's truly miserable and you're not seeing a positive change then try the gentle formula.

I would wait at least a week. It can take some time... it could just be form switching, not necessarily the formula itself.

I would try everything else for constipation before switching formulas again. Make sure that is truly the culprit.

I agree with what the others have said, also most young babies sound as if they are having a hard time with their BM's because they dont know how to relax their anal muscles, they are only truly constipated if their BM's are hard and visibly constipated!

TY for the siggies everyone!
