    That's what I've been doing and push his legs up to his belly and back down which has done wonders.

    Can you look into donor milk? Eats on feets and human milk for human babies have localized fb pages.

    I would also look into donor milk or making your own formula. Weston A Price has a ton of recipe with their nutritional content. For a baby under 6 months, I wouldn't give anything other than human milk or formula, but I would do the massage and get him to a chiro asap. Good luck! <3

    Eats on feets and human milk are free. They are simply pages that put you in touch with donees.

    I have my baby on the Weston A Price baby formula and he has nice breastmilk-like poops 1-2 times a day. It's super easy to make and so much better for them than the powdered crap (powdered constipates my baby too, to the point he bleeds, so I avoid it at all costs). Here is the link if you are interested: http://www.westonaprice.org/childrens-health/recipes-for-homemade-baby-formula

    It is also cheaper than powdered. The most expensive part is to gather the ingredients in the beginning. But they last a really long time. We spend about $10 a week on the raw milk.

    Donor milk should be free. If you buy it from a milk bank, it's been pasteurized and a lot of the nutrients are destroyed.

    I second chiropractor, another thing to try is a bath with epsom salts.
