So DD has suffered from constipation for more than a year now. We have been on milk of magnesia and now mirilax. We are going to a GI in early Oct. That being said, my mom says I had the same problem whe I was younger, even up to 8 or 9 years old (they didn't have online forums or the internet back then, so I guess I never had any medicine for it). And DD#2 only has a messy diaper once a week (she is 3.5 months old). Is this problem genetic? I know newborns can vary on their messy diapers, and one week is still ok in between messy diapers, but DD#! was like that too when she was a newborn, so I worry that this will turn into toddler constipation too.
Has anyone taken their LO to a GI? How did it go? what can they do to help?
