hello mom of Ziva!

actually, the brand of vitamins does not really matter.  As long as it contains the essential vitamins and minerals : it A, B complex, C, D, E, zinc and iron.  It may also have other minerals like magnesium and copper.  The reason we give vitamins and minerals as a supplement to our kids is precisely just that: a supplement.  Meaning, we supplement because we are lacking in the diet.  However, if your child is able to eat a full well-balanced diet (consisting of fruit, vegetables, carbohydrates and meat 3x a week) and is able to maintain the proper weight or age, there is actually no need to give vitamins as a supplement.

I hope this helps!

God bless!

hello mommy brent eldrich mommy!

first of all, may i ask the current weight of your baby?  it's not so much a matter of looks.  If his weight is at par with age, there is no need to worry.  This s actually a common problem I see in the clinic.  Moms think their kids are payatot just because they see some bone.  We have to assess this by weight, height and age.  After careful explanation, moms will understand that the looks are not important.  As long as their baby is healthy and at par with age. 

Another way to ensure the proper growth of your baby is by giving the proper diet to your child.  Please see my post above for mommy ziva. 

You may also ask your pediatrician about this.  she should have a weight-for-age graph in her clinic.  :)

I hope this helped.

God  bless!

hello mommy mom of ziva!

constipation is a problem that does not go away easily.  there are many possible causes of your child's constipation.  It could be diet (as in solid foods, too much meats, not enough fruits and vegetables), or it may be a cow milk protein intolerance.  or it could be a structural or anatomic problem. 

There are a few things we need to clarify first before we can dismiss this as simply constipation.. we have to rule out the possibility of it being an anatomical problem, which requires surgery.

How old is your child now?
What is the pooping pattern? (how frequent in a week?)
How old was your child when this problem first start?
Did your child have good poop in the first 24 hours of life (right after he was born)?
What other things do you notice in your child? Is there weight loss? Is there failure to thrive? Is there soiling in the underwear?
If your child does poop, how does it look like in size, shape and consistency?

There are a lot of things to be resolved.

Your pediatrician was right in telling you not to change milks frequently.  allow a minimum of 2 weeks to 1 month before you can actually see any changes in your baby.

@doc ina..thanks for replying..:)..i provided answers on your questions..if it is not too much to ask, ano po assessment nyo sa case ng baby ko?..:)..thanks in advance..:)

How old is your child now? 8 months

What is the pooping pattern? (how frequent in a week?) may times na everyday, may times din na 1 or 2 days syang hindi nakaka poop..ang pinakamatagal niya is 3 days po na hindi pag poop..

How old was your child when this problem first start? we also encountered this problem during her 0-6 months of age..though seldom lang talaga doc, we are thinking po na because mahina talaga siya uminum ng water kaya ganun..mas madalas po dati na wet ang stool niya...recently lang tuloy tuloy po ang constipation niya..like halos araw araw na..

Did your child have good poop in the first 24 hours of life (right after he was born)? basa po stool niya so we switched her milk from s26 gold-Nan-S26 plain..

What other things do you notice in your child? Is there weight loss? Is there failure to thrive? Is there soiling in the underwear? Nag weight loss lang po siya when she got sick..ubo/sipon..wala po siyang gana dumede sa bote..mas gusto niya dumede sa akin..

If your child does poop, how does it look like in size, shape and consistency? sometimes round, sometimes pahaba po..

Additional info po, usually cerelac, mashed potato/squash, marie bisquits lang naman pinapakain namin sa kanya doc..i also breastfeed her..:)..we also changed her milk na doc, from Gain to Enfapro +, ok naman po sa pedia niya..we are still observing if maging ok ang pag poop niya with her new milk..:)

hope to hear from you again..Thank you so much..:)

Hello mga mommies!!! Share ko lang..baby ko kase is using Enfa milks, from birth nag-Enfalac A+ (Php1,100++) na kami sa kanya. Fortunately, wala kaming naging problema, as in hindi sya nagkasakit or nag-constipate. And now that my baby is 10 months old, he is now drinking Enfapro A+ (Php1,078.00), so far sobrang ok naman. Napaka-active and happy ng baby ko...he can stand na at malapit na mag-walk. :) :) :)

good day mommy mom-of-ziva!

your baby is perfectly normal.  if your child maintains the weight for age, is not losing weight and does not have developmental delay, there is nothing to worry about.

now that you are switching milks, observe the pooping pattern for 2 weeks up to 1 month.  it is impossible to determine the effect of one bottle of milk on a child's poop. 

if you are really concerned about the constipation, it is best to have a pediatric gastro-enterologist examine your baby.  In my opinion, there is no need for this at the moment.  But if you feel there is need for this, go ahead, for your own peace of mind.  kindly read this article on constipation and how it is affected by milk. thanks!
