Rhys was on infant gaviscon and it made him awfully constipated going from yellow to dark green to small dark brown poos in a matter of weeks. is she having difficulty going or is she still normal? xx

is sma staydown thicker than normal feed?

i resorted to using baby rice as a thickener which i really didnt want to have to do - as HV and doctors wouldnt give me any other help other than ''reduce gaviscon'' which wasnt going to help as he needed the gaviscon to be able to take his feeds.

ive got an appointment with a pedeatrician on the 22nd of may which i hope will get me somewhere

Nope, as long as it is made as directed (powder has to be added to previously boiled refridgerated/cold water,then warmed if required) then its the same consistancy as normal feed. Its when it hits LO's stomach it thickens with the heat and its harder to bring up. Really worked for us, and our LO has severe reflux.

Well after speaking to HV yesterday we have had to take her off the gaviscon as it was getting more distressing for her to take a poo - so back to the Docs today to see what other alternatives there are.

hope they give you some answers as my doctors were useless. just told me to stop gaviscon and wait 8 weeks for a hospital appt. not good when youve got a baby who cant feed. x

My LO is constipated because of gaviscon & my doctor has given her lactulose to loosen her up. If that doesnt work, shes going to change the gaviscon for a different reflux medication
