DS has been getting mostly pumped milk since birth. I supplement with similac advance formula because I couldn't keep up. He was doing great until last week (7 weeks). Prior to that he was having tons of dirty diapers every day. He was super gassy but it never seemed painful, the kid just farted constantly! Anyway starting last week he only has one dirty diaper every other day and is now clearly uncomfortable on the in between day. He pushes like crazy, cries when he is pushing and every once in a while passes some gas. I know babies don't have to have a bowel movement daily but it seemed like a pretty sudden and drastic change from his normal. Plus I feel so bad seeing the little guy in obvious pain! The nurse at his pedi rdcommended 2tsp of Karo syrup in 2 bottles per day. Then we could revisit at his appointment next week.
Anyone else have this going on? What has been your solution? Also I am wondering what could be the cause...my diet hasn't changed. I did start working out pretty hard last week and am unsure if that could affect my milk? It would seem that he would have shown a reaction to his formula much sooner if that was the case, but again I have no idea!
