Hello,

The cremaffin syrup can be used to treat constipation during lactation.

I also suggest eating plenty of fruits and vegetables to help constipation.

Drinking plenty of water and fluids also helps.

I also recommend increasing physical activity.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
