Hi.

Welcome to justanswer.

I am a double board certified US doctor and I will help you with this.

I would take the baby to be seen.

A glycerine suppository might relieve this, if not, there might be a more severe problem.

I would not start cereal in a 5 month old unless there was a problem with milk feeding.

If breast feeding, I would go back to that only for another month.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. Also, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent (5)—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, just use reply and come back. I am here http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-dr-thomas/

It took so long to get an answer that I gave him an infant glycerin suppository and it worked.He did not have a hard stool but it was firmer than his usual He was just seen by his pediatrician on Wednesday and she told my son to start the cereal. My time at pediatric clinic was to start food at 6 months.

Hi

You question did not come up on my screen until one our two minutes before you received my response.

I have no control over that; that is a site issue.

Perhaps no one in the pediatrics category took it....not sure.

Anyway, happy that worked out.

If you give me a positive rating [hopefully a 5], I will be paid by just answer.

You can, in fact, save time and find me by request in medical for fast, accurate and comprehensive answers.

Any day of the week.

Good luck.

Take care.

I think your expert got a 5 out of five I however sent your company an email yesterday that asked you to discontinue my membership and credit my account. Please make sure this is done. It took 21/2!hours to get a response. By then I had to proceed to what I thought was right. I gave glycerine suppository which worked. Because I did not get an answer in a appropriate time limit I am disappointed in this service and will not use again

Hi

You are still talking with the effort.

I had nothing to do with the site delay.

Sorry about that. Now, and then, I answer quickly.

There is no rating.

You would need to click a 5 at the top of this page.

Customer service is who you want to talk with about the other issues.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
