Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Try giving him/her prunes or juice. Or even fruits like peaches or strawberries.
Are you sure it's from the milk? Formula is made with cow's milk, so your baby's digestive system should be used to it unless you were using a special formula.Try giving some juice and/or baby food with prunes. Earth's Best had a great flavor made with prunes.
Thanks!! It started after the switch and I am not giving her anything different. Will try giving her fruits...because she doesn't like juice.
