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 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...
