Re: Constipation in an 8-month old baby

thanks, everybody for the suggestions! the karo syrup surprises me, though. ? my boy's been eating prunes, but maybe the juice would help more. he likes pears, i'll try being consistent and also get some pear juice. hope it helps!

btw, umm... prunes taste good, you guys. they're sweet plums! maybe you didn't buy sunsweet brand prunes w/out pits. they're best, as far as i know. they're soft and delicious.

yeah, quoting myself... ok, now i've tried prune juice. awful. prunes are still good though.

My son's doing better, although not daily. He's been eating a yobaby blueberry yogurt everyday. and drinking more water, I made him a GOOD sippy cup, with a straw. And i cook him broccoli often. he likes that.

ER doc told me glycerin suppositories if it was really bad, otherwise Karo syrup, 1tbsp in every bottle for the first day, then once a day after that until regular bowel movements return.

warm up prune juice then have him drink it. works like magic. less iron in his diet is a huge factor and more water.
