Irritation about constipation

Without getting into details - does a-prune-a-day work for constipated babies?
My poor baby girl...

Anything you guys have tried that has worked... suggest away!

The one thing that always worked with my kids was to put DARK Kayro syrup (about 2 tablespoons) into their bottle with milk. Or cup if she's given up the bottle already.
2-3 times a day. It always did the trick.

Lay off bananas if she's eating a lot of them - they are constipating. Give her some apple juice, maybe?

I remember my mom recommending mineral oil, but I don't know the dosage.

I was lucky in that Liv loved prune juice, so I used to give her a small sippy cup of it when she became constipated and it worked well....

Prunes never worked for my daughter Try very ripe pears and acidophilus.

I used either baby food prunes or prune juice when Little Man had that trouble. Even when he got older I would still mix the baby food prunes in with his applesauce.

Luckily Girlie Girlie never really had that problem.

Let us know how it's going.

Hope things have come out okay with La Princesa (and yes, I mean that literally).

And I tagged you for a meme.
