my son is now 2yrs old but when he was an infant, he had that problem. I tried prune juice but he would drink his milk with the prune juice in it, so my doctor told me to try karo syrup. Once my son turned 1yr old, we found that he was lactose intolerant and couldnt drink milk unless lactose free. ALWAYS ASK YOUR DOCTOR FIRST JUST TO ENSURE YOUR BABY'S SAFETY AND WELL BEING! Good Luck

Half a children's suppository works every time. Doesn't matter how old they are either. Give it to him and take his diaper off and strip him down and put him on a towel and let him do his magic. Just make sure he's warm and clam. Turn the tv down or off to make him relax more so he doesn't strain to hard. If you see a little blood this time don't worry, it's just from being constipated. If you keep seeing it take him to the doctor. It's more then likely a problem in his GI tract. My daughter has the same thing but they can't figure out where her's is coming from or why.

You can give your baby juice that young but because juice is acidic you HAVE to water it down. My son had an issue switching from breast milk to formula and I gave him a 4 oz bottle, 2oz apple juice and 2oz water. He pooped and didn't get constipated any more. My doctor also said use apple juice not prune because prune juice is WAY worse for them. Oh and you can use either diluted apple juice or you can buy it pre-diluted in the baby section in little bottles.

I JUST went to the doctor for my baby about this 2days ago. He told me to make some camomille tea or mint tea and give her an ounce each time. She had not gone for 3 days and within an hour of drinking it she finally went! We almost had a party for her lol. She just turned 7weeks today! But I wouldnt worry too much unless it seems like he is in pain b/c its normal for some babies to even go 7-9 days without poopin! but my daughter was screaming her head off so to the docs we went! but best advice ive ever gotten - camomille tea to make the poopy come! - he said you can even add a little sugar if they wont drink it. my daughter really likes the egyptian camomille apple flavored! we dont even use sugar!

I've heard that some babies dont go everyday! It could just be how he goes for now.. my daughter went through a phase that she would onlyl go every couple days! you could try a little apple sauce (baby kind not regular) , ive heard that helps alot!
