Hi, my now 14 month old has been struggling with constipation ever since we started weaning. He's been on cosmocol since 7 months. It does work if he takes it, but we really struggle to get him to take it. It takes all day to get about 60 mls down him. I think it's because he breastfeeds so isn't thirsty. But I really don't want to cut down or stop breastfeeding as he loves it so much and it's so good for him.
So I'd appreciate any tips on getting him to drink his cosmocol. (He doesn't take a bottle so I can't just express and put it in a bottle, he only likes his booby milk direct from the source 😂)
We have cosmocol lemon and lime which we mix in orange squash. Does anyone know if plain or chocolate movicol tastes better? Can you mix plain movicol into cows milk, and does it taste ok?
Also health visitor advised me that they can have too much fibre? Is this true? We do try to stick to a high fibre diet, so now I'm confused!
