My son is 7 months old and has really bad constipation. He has been pushing so hard that he turns bright red and spits up on himself and cries. It makes me so sad to see him in pain but more than that I'm really worried that he is going to hurt himself straining. I've given him prunes which helps but the very next day he is backed up again. We have a doctor's appointment on Monday (in 4 days). Is there anything I can do to ease his discomfort or help soften his bowel movement.
