Discussions that mention prenatal

Children's Health board

Pepending on your sons age there can be a few things effecting him.Is he taking any vitamins with iron in it.If he is on formula such as similac does it have iron in it.?.Iron causes constipation in infants.If you are breast feeding or using breast milk it can cause constipation also if your nursing and still taking your prenatal vitamins.Prune juice and in water is good to loosen the stools. There might be a condition where the rectum is two tight. This is a common disorder for babies and if not corrected can cause the child to not want to have a stool because it hurts.In the worst cases a stretching of the rectum but a pediatrician will have to be performed or possible corrected surgically. I wish you the best
