Just a pondering if our orange juice dilute option doesn't work. O is 6 weeks, how much lactulose would you give him and how often?

Hmm we were prescribed this but before we picked up the prescription they'd changed it to movicol. Lactulose should be given with water as if not it takes it from the body (so the pharmacist told me, so better for children) whereas movicol doesn't need water and can be put in milk. We were on half a sachet a day

I'd phone your GP or HV and ask as I'm not sure if it's suitable for newborns TBH. Sorry I can't be more helpful. Have you also tried baby massage? There are some methods that are meant to help with constipation. x

Yeah I did a baby massage course when C was a baby. I've tried warm baths too nothing's regulating him poor sod seems in agony. Am currently waiting a call from the HV.
Thanks Missus S...that's interesting about the difference between lactulose and movicol!
