My youngest daughter is 3 months next week. Shes hasn't pooped normal sincw she was born. dr has had us try everything from water to soy formula and the next step is medicine. i don;t want my baby on meds and don't want her jumping from formula to formula any more. any suggestions? maybe pureed prunes rather than juice. she's a big girl. :) 14lbs.

A baby this age is not really capable of chewing or swallowing prunes as yet. The juice will provide the same benefits of it. But maybe its time to do as doc suggests and use the meds. I would not do anything until the last thing but sometimes we have to use meds to get the results. Have you not had her tested for some kind of digestive disorder that is keeping her from doing this?
