Dark : Dark karo syrup has been used for years as a constipation remedy in babies - and it used to work well. Unfortunately, the manufacturing of karo syrup has changed over the last few years causing it to be less effective in treating constipation. There is also a chance of infant botulism - a very rare form of food poisoning - associated with karo syrup. That being said, constipation is common in infants and there are a couple of other things you can do to help. 1.) give pear or prune juice - 1oz/age in months/day so in your case 1 oz. Not only does prune or pear juice have sugar which can help soften bms, but also has fiber (notice the gritty texture when you drink it?). This does not mean that you should be feeding your baby juice as a part of her regular diet, but it's ok in daily small amounts to treat constipation. 2.) if juice does not work, then you can try a glycerine suppository which you can buy over the counter. Just cut a pea-sized piece of the glycerine and place it in the baby's anus to lubricate the hard stool. This is not meant for daily use, so if you find that your baby needs a suppository in order to have a bm despite dietary changes, discuss with your child's doctor. 3.) do not use mineral oil, laxatives or enemas. These methods are not safe for infants. 4.) finally, if constipation is persistent and not improved with any of the above recommendations, be sure to contact your baby's doctor. There are some very rare underlying disorders such as hirschprung's disease, cystic fibrosis or hypothyroidism that can cause chronic constipation. ...Read more

My 16 month daugther pediatritian ask me to give her soy milk or lactaid, can I give her enfamil prosobee or have to be another kind of soy milk?

My 16 month daugther pediatritian ask me to give her soy milk or lactaid, can I give her enfamil prosobee or have to be another kind of soy milk?

If you want, however: If she has progressed to the average toddler intake of solids, she does not need the extra additives that go into formula and make it more expensive. A simple lactose free product like lactaid or soy milk would cost less and achieve what the doc wants. You can always do this if you want. ...Read more
