My 13 wk baby has been on Nutramigen for 2 months for suspected intolerances, there has been no improvement, is it safe to try dairy formula again?
What symptoms ?: I would recommend discussing this with your pediatrician. What do you mean "suspected intolerances" - what are the symptoms? There are many "symptoms" that could erroneously be blamed on formula. Before you go and change things up, discuss the symptoms with the pediatrician - as they were the ones that started the nutramigen they will know more about what has been going on and have full details. ...Read more

If there are signs of dehydration or if the diarrhea lasts for more than 3 to 4 days see the doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Constipation: Long term use of Miralax (polyethylene glycol) is not associated with any long term side effects. The same can not be said for ex lax.

Can I use milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) for primer despite of i once had kidney stone problem?
Sure: This has nothing to do with kidney stones. Most stones are calcium-based and even then, the problem usually isn't so much excess calcium as insufficient water intake.
