3 1/2 Months Still Don't Go Poop
(fort worth texas)
My daughter has only pooped on her own 3 times since she was 2 weeks old.
I B/F for a very short 4 days and she pooped like a lot.
We have switched her formula 3 times now. Her dad is lactose intolerant and she is on soy now. I have to help her go when its been to long. Some times she does pass her gas fine other times I give her Mylicon(? Spelling) drops. We do switch up on helping her from prune juice to apple to pear and qtip method, kayro, and sometimes even baby Supp. All with doc approval. I have no clue what else to do...

Baby Can't Poop On Her Own - What To Do
What an adoreable little girl you have!
I am sorry to hear about her ongoing problems. Of course a 3.5 month old should be able to poop without help.
What type of formulas have your tried so far? Babies that are allergic to milk protein are also sensitive to soy protein
, so soy forumla wouldn't help in such case.
Are you sure she is lactose intolerant? A lot of symtoms of lactose intolerance are very similar to those of milk allergy. Maybe that is at least something to discuss with your daughter's pediatrician. Her Dr. can run a series of tests to see if she is allergic to milk protein.
I also think you should take her to another pediatrician for a second opinion if your first one can't help you more.
In addition to asking the doctor for further advice and examination, you can try other formulas (for example hydrolysate ones
that usually work well for babies allergic to both milk and soy protein) and provide your baby with some extra water.
For some babies, regular baby massage
and warm baths may also help.
