constipated on formula Lock Rss


My son lachlan is 9 weeks old and is now on formula (karicare gold) he seems to be very constipated and unhappy. Does anyone know of a better formula to help with this problem?

Hi Belinda,

Try re-posting this post in "Feeding your Newborn" and you may get more replies there..

Im pretty sure Karicare Gold has extra iron in it which may make them Constipated (but im not 100% sure), why not try the normal Karicare for infants?

Hope this helps,


hey belinda

Hi belinda

i hav a 8 wk old son and he is on formula S26 for infants when i first swaped him over from breast he was a bit constipated but i just gave him small amounts of boiled water and within 2 days he was fine.

S26 was recommended by my mum she said thats what she fed me and reckons it the best and i would hav to agree with her.

i have a 3 month old little boy and he was constipated when he was about 7 weeks old we rang the maternity ward and they said that we were supposed to be giving him at least 40ml of water per day but no body ever told us that so maybe that might help or try a little bit of sugar in the water that works within 12 hours

goodluck hope i could help
