    Bottle baby has been getting dam's milk, we are at the yellow poopis stage, thick & very sticky, should I give her a little oil in her bottle? Or syringe it orally? Like a cc at every feeding?? (thought I knew this stuff but brain on overload)
    I have cod liver oil, flax seed oil...kinda dont wana use canola When she squats to poop she cries out a little..thank you so much!!

    a little soapy warm water in the rear I hear helps. If that doesnt work some mineral oil orally should do the trick

    Let us know how it works. If you do not get any results (poop) soon you need to give her a infant enema. It will kill her if she does not get that out.
