My daughter is almost 3 weeks old and is extremely constipated. She is on breast milk with a 22 calorie fortifier. This fortifier is really high in iron so im sure that is what is making her constipated. How can I get her to poop and should I take her off the fortifier. Or possibly cut down the amount of fortifier she is getting?

You should consult her pediatrician.

Thanks I was just looking for something to do at home because it was 5 in the morning so I couldn't consult her doc.

She's a three week old preemie, none of the things that can be done on older children is recommended for infants that young.
