formula changes & gas/poop woes
Sun, 01-30-2011 - 10:02am

Hi Everyone,

Where do I find message boards about these problems? I have a 1 month old with alot of gas & seemingly issues with pooping,...First regular & infrequent to now a harder BM - maybe starting constipation....we changed to soy formula for the past 2 weeks hoping it would help the gassiness/fussy periods and possible milk intolerance.

Not sure what it is but the crying associated with what appears to be GAS & Poop pain sometimes is rough for my baby girl...where do I find boards for this info & advice from other Moms?

Thanks sweetie

I had that problem with my oldest when we tried her on soy. she got SOOOO backed up. it was awful!!!

turns out it wasn't the formula, it was the bottles we were using. they let too much air in which gave her gas. so we switched her to dr brown bottles, back to regular formula, and added mylecon to each bottle. fixed her right up.
