    Poor o was screaming like I never heard before just now I went to change him and he had had a small ball of very hard poo poor boy just gave him an ounce of boiled water to soften it all up! He is on hungrier baby formula so think that is why

    Yeah could be hun. Defo keep offering him water. Think FF babies can have a fair bit of water compared to BF babies. My friend FF her LO and he was born last May, from June whenever he started fussing she offered him water before milk so she would know if he was thirsty or hungry. He used to drink loads of water.

    Normal one doesn't satisfy him, so hv told us to try it and he has been much more satisfied

    Oh chick I really dont think O should be on hungry baby, but I said my reasons in the your other post so wont say again, but i'd say yeah thats defo whats doing that to his poos (one of the reasons to stop, it doesn't seem good for his wee tummy) their poos should be moose like at that age, not hard

    :eh:

    It I'll probably take a day or two to I back to normal. Hungry baby formulas are just too much for newborn babies. Keep offering him normal formula and some water and hopefully soon it will be fine.
