Hello everyone,
This is my first post to the list and I would like to make a comment regarding
constipation in breastfed babies.  My own child had this problem starting at
about five months of age when she was still exclusively breastfed.  We later
found out that she is gluten intolerant.  I had been off of dairy for several
months before the constipation started, so I know dairy was not a factor.
After a couple months of constipation, her stools became very loose and stayed
that way even after she started eating solids.  In addition to problems with
her stools, she also had skin rashes, irritability, sleeplessness, lots of
gas, and spit up/vomited all the time.  Ironically, her growth rate was always
good.
Hope this helps.  I will be interested to hear what the outcome is.
