topic2 Hard poo :(

Really hard!! I said I'd use nappies as an indication of a problem, so is there one? What should I do? She has been having water too! I really don't want to go back to formula topups.

:aww:

To be honest with what I have read in regards to poo with formula is that ff babies tend to get more consitpated.

Bm is made just right, so they hardley have much waste, I agree with Mervs mum... Proberly needed a clear out Razz


Breast-fed babies do not usually get constipated because breast milk is such a low residue diet. Most of the milk is absorbed by the baby and used. The stools consist of a small amount of unabsorbed protein curds and a large amount of bowel secretions, chiefly mucus.

Formula- fed babies, on the other hand, can get constipated as infant formulas are not nearly as well digested as breast milk, and leave quite a bit more residue in the colon. The young infant's colon is simply not designed for all the residue and stool bulk. The residue builds up, is dried too much, and becomes hard, pebbly stool. It is naturally difficult and uncomfortable for the baby to pass.
