Apple juice and constipation

I'm confused about all the info about apple juice used for constipation in baby. My peditrican says I can give DD up to 2 oz of prune juice or apple juice each day to help w/constipation.

I first used prune juice but it seemed to be harsh on her system although it did the trick well. So, I tried apple juice diluted (since I was concerned that it was too strong) and I'm not so sure it's working as her stools are still seeming too formed.

I googled about apple juice and constipation and some sites say apple juice shouldn't be used but pear or prune and others say apple juice works as a more milder/gentler approach.

So what would you do?

Re: Apple juice and constipation

i like prune better than apple, but I like pear better than prunes. pear juice to me is more gentle, but you would want to give it every other day or so to keep her regular and prevent having to start all over. if you are experiencing any reflux, i'd stick with prune juice as it is less acidic. you can always water it down--I recommend this for all juice. I also use white grrape, but it seems to be the gentlest of them all.

You could also try using apple and prune or pear juice mixed togethor with a little water so its not too harsh but also effective Hope this helps!!

Thanks mamas, I bought some Gerber apple & prune juice (premixed) last night and diluted w/water. I gave DD some today but still no poopy. I'm sure we'll see results soon.
