Hi,Reena thanks for query.Lactogen or cerelac can not lead to constipation.Give him more of liquids,fruit juices and vegetable soups are better as they contain fiber and help in constipation.Do not give him biscuits and other maize products.bye.

welcome to hcm,
lactogen 2 may perhaps be cause of constipation of the infant.put the child on juice apple and boil few numbers of aniseed in diluted cow milk and feed asper routine.one dose of 5 drops alumina 30 in little water may be given to baby thrice a day.this will provide great relief to the child

Hi welcome to Healthcare magic

The age of the is 9 months,you need to develop to feed the child with ragi ganji, smashed vegetables, rice ganji.. feeding of only milk can also result in constipation..
If the child do not pass stools more than 2 days, then you need to consult a pediatrician...

Hello Doctor, My 1.7 year old son is having constipation problem from last 3-4 months. I had consulted with both alophathy and homeopathy doctora but the problem is not resolved. Below are some of his symptoms which are being observed in him: 1. Crying and shouting loudly during bowel movement. He use to go after 2-3 days, due to which the stool becomes hard. 2. Mother feeding had been stopped by him after 4-5 months of his birth, then we started to feed him via bottle, but now he don t drink milk. We use to feed him while he is sleeping. 3. His intake diet is also not proper, he use to eat couple of bits of chapati or other things. 4. He never cry or shout when he feels hungry, usuall kid use to cry or shout whenever they are hungry. Me and my wife both are worried about his health, we are afraid if anything serious happens to him down the time. Also, no doctor has asked for any tests. They just tell us this is a common problem in majority of kids of this age. I request you to please provide your valuable inputs and suggest us next course of action to get rid of his problem. Thanks

Hi, I have chronic constipation and have for approximately 2 years. I have had colonics and a colonoscopy but the constipation keeps reoccurring. For the past three months no only do I have irregular bowel movements that are pencil thin the upper part of my stomach is extremely distended. I recently had a CT scan for the upper and lower and the doctor told me I was full of bowel. When I asked him if perhaps I have some type of obstruction to cause the backup problem he answered with that I should get another colonic and do not take any laxatives and eat roughage. I am 60 years old and eat fairly well, no fast foods, etc. Three months ago I had a small hernia under my belly button fixed and since then from my belly button upward my stomach stays blown up in the front and on the sides. I work out two hours a day and am gaining wait and can not fasten any of my pants or skirts. Sorry about the long story, do you have any suggestions?

I had a colonoscopy last April. Was hospitalized for diverticulitis for 6 days in January 2013. Within the past month I ve had what my Dr. called Colon Spasms. These are quite painful. I do not have hard or firm bowel movements, and I usually have a b.m. 2x per day. I do take 1Tb. of Optifiber mixed in water or milk daily. I am wondering if I need to change my dietary habits. I eat a lot of fruit and vegetables and this abdominal pain is a new thing for me.
