increasing formula without paediatrician's advice is not a good idea coz more formula means that later there could be an obesity risk. ask your paediatrician if you can give nestle lo lac as well...

Putting pressure while pooping doesn't mean constipation. However, hard stool does mean constipation. increase breastfeed, put more water in the food and feed your baby good amount of water. if s/he doesn't take water, then compensate with breastfeed. an iron rich diet can also give rise to constipation. see and minimise iron rich food for few days and then restart ...
