    Question constipation in fully bf baby, taking reflux meds

    MY 12wk old lo has reflux but is what they call a 'happy chucker' so have not given him infant gaviscon regularly, however in the past week he has become extremely spilly and so have given him gaviscon twice a day as per dr script. Up until today he had not done a bowel movement for about 4 or 5 days and so when he did today I was suprised it was really thick and solid like a ff baby. Could this be the gaviscon? his nappies are still wet (5 or 6 disposables per day). I have had supply issues in the past so am worried that supply has dropped again........

    wets sound great, its normal for babies that age to go longer between poops.
    some babies go 8-10 days even longer for some is normal.
    As long as poops are not hard.
