Constipation in babies

Depending on your babys age you may be able to give them baby prune juice to help get things moving. If they don't like it you can try to water it down as the taste can be a bit much for babies. Keep in mind though you should not give juice or water to very young babies unless directed by your pediatrician.

    "Keep in mind though you should not give juice or water to very young babies unless directed by your pediatrician." I think this goes double for breastfed babies, as constipation is rare for them. Just wanted to throw that in. :)

      Tish... yes constipation usually occurs in formula fed babes as a BF baby's stool is more often watery than that of a formula baby. if your child is constipated at a very young age always check with a pediatrician to rule out other issues like a bowel obstruction
