Re: My baby is constipated...HELP!

You know, he could just be changing his schedule. My son did this at that exact age. He used to poop all the time, like every diaper change, then at 6 weeks he just stopped. No poop for a week! I was a little nervous, but our ped. assured us it was normal. And that was that. He was also EBF and after that only pooped every 5 days or so until he started solids. I never gave him anything. Oh...and I would NOT give him juice at all. His little body is too small to process that.

I did hear (and I can't remember if it worked or not) that if I ate a lot of cantaloupe he would poop. This works great for my son now at 2 years old, so you could give it a shot.
