My baby girl will be 8 months on Monday. She has been constipated for about 2 months now. We have tried EVERYTHING! Apple juice, prune juice, water, Karo syrup, suppositories.... If she doesn't have one of those remedies she won't go at all. Currently she is going but her poop is extremely hard (like a rock) and she screams her little head off. :(. I read today that some mom's changed their formula. I don't think it's the formula because she didn't start getting constipated until we started giving her rice cereal in the morning and night. Since then we have stopped giving her rice cereal and even went so far as to stop all solids. When we did that she still didn't go on her own so we had to give her prune juice. That worked for a while but as soon as we started back the solids her poop was hard. Currently she is eating solids one to two times a day, drinking 4 oz of prune juice and 3 oz of water. She drinks about 24- 30oz of formula a day. I know this is a lot of information but I wanted to paint the entire picture so I can get as much help as possible. Any advise would help! Thanks!
