What causes constipation?
Formula fed babies are more prone to constipation, and sometimes a baby can become constipated after starting solids. If a baby is not feeding well due to teething or illness, they may be dehydrated and become constipated.
In some rare cases, constipation is caused by a more serious underlying medical issue. If you are concerned, it is important to see your doctor, child health nurse or pharmacist for further information.
