Questions | Reviews **~


I have a 3 week old infant and I've been giving him Mylicon drops in his formula since he was born.  He is constipated and I was wondering if constipation is one of it's side affects.

in my post, I had a very EASY baby. I don't know how I would have gotten thurgoh what you went thurgoh with Jackson (poor fella!). Big hugs and props to you for getting thurgoh it with some sanity and for being such a great mom in the process! And how amazing is that about the chiropractor!? My father-in-law is a chiropractor and I've always found they helped me (it was the only thing that kept me comfortable in my last trimester!) but this story is amazing. And thanks for your sweet words about my post. It means so very much to me! xx
