Ive just put him on soy formula but have just been reading from other mothers that its what causes constipation and that its not good for them and since he has been on it he has done quite hard dark green poos and its very hard for him. I've tried EVERY other formula and used thickners, he is still so very unsettled everyday. I think he is now constipated or has colic, always bringing his knees up, gets a really tight belly, clinches his fists and cries to the point where his face is RED and to the point where he is gasping for air, he always has wind pains (i think thats why it is) and has to work so hard to push out any wind and its always a massive strain to do a poo. i barely ever put him down during the day he sleeps ok at night which is great but barely during the day at all.
Ive used everything to try n settle him, gripe water, infacol, infants friend, colic relief, some sugar and water and now trying chammomile tea, still not much of a change, either I'm not sticking to one thing for long enough or thats whats causing it and/or making it worse!
My gp doesn't seemed to stressed about it all and still won't refer my to a paed!
please can someone help! Im at my wits end and have nothing left in me anymore sad
