[AlternativeAnswers] Re: Formula, probiotics, intestinal problems and infants


Hi Teri,

I'm new to this group but I just dealt with this issue with my new daughter. I tried breast feeding her but she was VERY intolerant to it. I could tell she was in a lot of pain. I tried modifying my diet but it didn't help. Reluctantly, with tears, I had to switch to formula. She had a terrible time with that too. We tried "Gentlease" and Soy based but nothing worked. It was either constipation, cramping or diarrhea. The nurse at the Dr.'s office would tell us to try her on the various formulas for a few weeks but I could see they weren't workin after a few days. Poor little doll suffered so much! Finally we tried Nutramigen as recommended by her Pedi. It took a few days but worked wonderfully. It seems that she had a problem digesting protein or a sensitivity to it. Now she is a 19 month toddler full of energy and eating all kinds of organic foods, milk and almond milk.
Good luck and many blessings to your family and the little one!!!

> Hello dear group,
> My nieces 2 mo old baby boy is having troubles. She stopped nursing him completely after breastfeeding combined with formula since birth. Her milk just would not come in completely in order to fulfill the baby. She tried a few different formulas, not sure how much time she allowed for the baby to get used to each before trying another, but he is having troubles with constipation, cramping, gas and bubbles in tummy. We know he is in pain at times. He will go several days with out having a bowel movement and when he does, the consistency of the bm is hard like clay, smells bad because has been in his intestines too long.
> What advice can anyone give for this problem? What is the best formula to give, can he be given probiotics for good bacteria for his intestines? I showed her how to do colon massage and stimulation on him and the day I did this, he did have a small bowel movement a couple hours after I finished doing the manipulation. Is it recommended to give infants spring water at all? She has heard that water can harm the baby? Sounds odd, but we dont know.
> We would appreciate any help with all this. You can also email me or send post for all to see--doesnt matter--I would appreciate any help from anyone.
