Hi Doc,

My baby is 2.5 months old and was on formula milk since birth.

However, he is constantly constipated.and I changed his formula milk to Novalac specialized for constipation. Now he easily gets colic and gasses.

I have tried before almost 6 different formula milk brands.Should I change to hypoallergenic formula?

Hi Salhamzah

Congrats on your new born!

Constipation is passing of hard stools. Stools passage daily or up to once a week can be normal as long as it’s soft.

Please don’t keep changing formulas. If it’s genuine constipation - then you need to visit your doctor to ensure there is nothing else of concern.

Colic and gas is normal in infants.

Warm regards

Dr Sanjay Woodhull
