Thanks for the query

Constipation is a common problem in this age babies as the bowel movements are not much enhanced in babies. One of the commonest cause is the use of formula milk as it is hard to digest. If you are feeding formula milk. change it with the advice of your doctor. Also discuss with your doctor about the use of laxatives like lactodil. A massage on the baby's tummy and cycling his legs is often quite helpful
