    Hi,

    Jack hasn't had a dirty nappy since last night.
    He has seemed to be in some discomfort with his tummy today and has been 'trumping' loads.

    Im thinking he might be constipated. Anyone have any tips on what to give him to help?
    I tried gripe water but nothing as yet.

    Does not having water make a baby constipated?

    I was told that if baby is formula fed they can get dehydrated so should be offered a drink of cooled boiled water occasionally?!
