juice for constipation

Our pediatrician advised us to give our son a small amount of juice or baby prunes. The prunes can sometimes cause him to go from constipation to diarrhea.

Watered down pear juice works best for us. My son has had an anal fissure due to constipation.

    Great advice! We fortunately haven't had to deal with constipation too much - the one time we did we just gave half a jar of prune baby food and we were good to go!

      I didn't know about pear juice until I read it here on Moms.com! :) Great suggestion.
