Does all hungry baby milk make babies constipated? Anyone found one that doesn't?
Thanks x

This is most likely due to the thickeners they use slowing down digestion. Your pharmacist is a good person to speak to about this.
To alleviate constipation feed your baby boiled cooled water alongside their milk and spend a few minutes between feeds circling their little legs (similar movements to what you make on a bicycle) as that stimulates their intestines.
Hope this is helpful

there are not added thickeners. They are predominantly casein (milk protein) based which can be harder to digest. I used Aptamil hungry milk with ds and he did not get constipated

I have just started using SMA number 2 milk for my son's night feed (getting him to sleep longer!) and if anything it has regulated his bowels and got him to sleep for far longer. Result on all counts smile
