Re: Ideas for increasing calories...
Our dr told us to put our lo one a high caloric diet as at the time he was being ffomrula fed. so for every 3 ounces of formula we had to put 5 scoops for formula in it. Aside from the other suggestions mamas gave as far as food this might be an option for his milk. THough our baby had trouble with cosnitpation too. We tryope dth edark karo syrup int he bottle and miralz helped a little to per dr. But what i thought worked the best was glyrcein (we put some in his little num to help him poop). I wasnt a big fan and thot we really shoudl have to do this every couple days but the Gastro said it was better thatn the miralax bcuz it was just glycein...becasue with the myralax we were jut putting somethign else in to his system when he already had enough and enough probs pooping. Good luck mama.
