My baby was on Miralax from 4 months to 10 months old. Despite being entirely breastfed, she became constipated within days of starting Ditropan for her bladder. I hated having to give her the Miralax and never even achieved very good results. I heard about using emulsified fish oils and blackstrap molasses as an alternative. I have to admit that I was skeptical at first. I started with just the fish oils, which did make the stools very slippery but not soft enough. I then added the molasses - wow, magic!! The stools are now the perfect consistency, much better than I could ever achieve with Miralax. And we have the added health benefits of fish oils (heart and joint health, brain health, etc) and molasses (great source of iron that won't cause constipation). The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that my baby initially was not a fan of the flavors and it takes a bit to find the perfect dose. However, I am finding easier ways to get the supplements in and flavored fish oils help too. We are also able to mix her daily probiotic right in with these supplements to really round out her bowel health.”
