Baby Having Hard Stools On Soy Milk
My son is 2 1/2 months. He is on soy milk and having hard stools sometimes and sometimes he even has blood is his stools. My doctor told me to give him Gerber prune juice, but I don't know if I should go ahead and change the formula or continue to give him the baby prune juice.
What should I do?

Soy Milk Formula And Constipation
It sounds your little son is having a hard time...
I assume that cow's milk isn't an alternative, since he is on soy formula? Have you also tried hypoallergenic formula
? They are more expensive, but often work well for babies with protein allergies or significant intestinal problems. Two examples are Alimentum
The protein components in these formulas have been predigested
into basic amino acids, which is why many infants can tolerate them.
You could discuss such a solution with your baby's doctor.
Prune isn't dangerous, I just feel that it would be better to find a formula that works for your child, if possible.
