Q:

My lo is constipated... She didn't do potty in mrng like her routine but did now. And it was not running in texture rather it was lumpy and she was putting unusual pressure while pooping.
How can this be treated?



Rebecca Prakash

Satyam include if she is on BM or combination feed, it will help.

Hey
Is she on any medication... Or unwell

Satyam Sharma

She is combination fed... Just on supplements like iron calcium.

Neha Vij Neha Mani Mishra pls help

Neha Mani Mishra

Actually such behaviour is common in little ones. My daughter used to do it too. She puts pressure because the potty is tight. Please apply some heeng on her navel. Burp her. It will be ok after she poops two three times . There is no such treatment. Even the doctor say not to worry.

Hey
Keep feeding well. Keep her hydrated. Chk with ur pediatrician if she is constipated because of iron supplements....

Satyam Sharma

Hmm even I think so! Will keep feeding her. Thank you

Rebecca Prakash

Skip iron supplements for 2 or 3 days and see..

Neha Vij

Nothing to worry dear. Pretty normal with combi fed kids. As Neha mentioned applying hing on navel area helps

Satyam Sharma

Thanks Rebecca and Neha!

Satyam Sharma

Yes it was.. I stopped it for 2 days and she is back on track
