Hello,

Babies can have constipation sometimes acquired due to full fat milk in small age 3-6 months. Give him a suppository or take him for anal stimulation. Try giving him mother’s feed or formula feed till 6 months.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
