    Have there been any changes as far as feeding goes that might explain it - feeding less (is she getting enough milk) or have you changed formula?

    I've heard of people giving bubs small amounts of warm water or water mixed with a tiny bit of brown sugar to help with constipation. There is also a thread here about prune juice.

    We had some constipation issues due to gaviscon. Our Dr advised us to first try 2-3 extra bottles of water (as I was breastfeeding all but one feed a day) and we would off her 20mls cooled boiled water. When that didn't work we would offer 50mls cooled boiled water with 1/4 tsp brown sugar & that did the trick. HTH!
