I go through infant suppositories like crazy. The Walgreens brand are really good. I have small babies, so I have to cut them in half, but they generally work every time my twins are having trouble pooing :)

Quoting Kirsty:

One level teaspoon of BROWN sugar in 30mls (1 fluid oz) of cooled boiled water.
Brown sugar softens the stool.

Make sure that it is Brown sugar as white sugar binds them up!

So if there is a loose bowel movement, you can use white sugar the same way but do the opposite!



this really work... for real... my baby is three months and his doctor told me to do the same...its great...

easy way to feed prunes is if you cook them with some apples....like a fruit compote that will do the trick

A little Flax seed oil works every time. You only need a little eye droper full & I was able to get my kids to take it easier than prune juice. My Dr. said it was the only thing that really works to help them keep reg. My son went 10 days with out going. We gave him a little & that's all it took.

I used CVS brand glycerin suppositories (child size). It's what my Doc recommended when my daughter wasn't pooping for days. It worked! The only thing I didn't like was that I had to stick it up her butt. But trust, all that build up will come out!

U can use 1/4tsp mylanta twice a day. Or prune/apple juice. Rectal stimulation w/themometer. If all previous fails u can use OTC 1/4 glycerin suppository.

They say it's okay even up to 5 days. In the mean time try gerber plum desserts.. That or lots of fresh fruit!!

There isnt any real need to panic just yet. But if he is crying and miserable I have an instant relief if he needs out of pain. Just get back with me. Im a mother of 4 if that makes you feel any better.

Hello: Deborah give hime some baby orange juice don't add water. That should do it. Are warn some chocolate milk need something very sweet. If he hasn't went an the next 2-days you need to take him to the doctor don't let it go over 5-day. Because everyone should pooh 1's-aday. Make sure you take him to the doctor if it has past 4-days that can make him sick an he could die from that also. So keep a eye on that kim.Want to make sue the little angel is okay.

Try lying baby on his/her back, grab both legs at the calf area and gently push knees to baby's tummy, release then repeat. Sometimes it helps move things along or relieve some of the intestinal pressure. Or a lower back massage while babe is lying on their tummy helps too. That and prune juice like some of the other gals here have said ;o)

If u massage his/her tummy pressing in just a little it stimulates the digestive track and works within the next 24hrs and its not gonna cause them diarrehia(cant spell) this is a little trick i learned from my mother in law when my daughter was having trouble. it really does work and they also enjoy the little belly massage.....

Fresh berries like blueberries, raspberries and stawberries work well. You also can get a baby enema at the local drugstore. Very easy and cheap.

The thing that always worked in my family was giving the kids dried fruit. You can find dried apricots or plums or mangoes or something sometimes in a mixture. The apricots worked REALLY well for my boys and they really likes the way they tasted. Also, not all people go #2 everyday. Your baby may be adjusting her system to just go when she needs to. Different people process their food differently. But at that age I'd try the fruit or like the other mom suggested some prune juice.

you can try prune juice, im pretty sure at that age they are able to have some of that. i know this is going to sound bad, but put some petroleum jelly on the tip of a thermometer and put it up the behind, if he/she is constipated that will help relieve it. also give them more fluid intake.
