    And now Naomi is also constipated! We were told not to give her water with the feed as it dilutes the medication, but to hold her bottom off the mat by dangling her lower half by her ankles, and that should help her to go. It did in the doctor's office, she pooed all over the place. But since she came home it hasn't worked.

    Any advice?

    Actually our Health Nurse told me that glucose and water is no longer recommended and that a half teaspoon of freshly squeezed orange juice should do the trick.

    It DID! And Naomi loved it, even licked all around her mouth looking for more. Her expression was priceless *L*
