    I was told by my Ped Dr to give my daughter Milk of Mag in her bottle. I usually do a tablespoon of it in a 4oz bottle and they said that its just like giving her veggies…She goes everyday by using it

    My daughter is almost 4 months old and she seems to be pooping fine about 2 times a day and they look like healthy bowelmovements but my issue is that she is starting to grunt and strech her body out as she makes those noises and they are loud. She does it over and over again. It looks like she is constipated but she is pooping. They I thought maybe she is just gassy and give her gas drops, but she still does the grunting. She doesnt normally cry while grunting but if she does it for a while, she gets aggravated and starts fussing. Any advice on what this could be or what I could do??

    To jenn…most definately yhat the dark green bm is caused by the iron. My 1 year old son takes iron drops and his bm is dark green too. Every thing is fine. My son also is constipated. He been constipated since 6 months. When he was 6-10 months prune juice worked great. Now that he’s older I have to give him like 8 onces instead of 4 onces. I think its because he’s getting older. I also use laxatives..they work in just minutes! If u use laxatives be sure to put that diapwr back on really fast.

    Hey everyone, my son is 5 months, and he has had constipation since the day he was born. After trying about everything, the doctor said to try 1 oz. of juice in the morning and 1 oz. at night. We used apple prune juice and he is doing good! Once it gets off it, though, he goes right back to being constipated. But the doctor just said to keep doing it if it’s working. If your child is a little older, you can give them more than 2 oz. a day, but he told me not over like 3 or 4 oz. a day and that was at 4 months.

    For those who are breastfeeding… My son is 2 1/2 months old and he is easily constipated. His pediatrician said this can be do to the fact that he is also drinking formula. I use gripe water for gas and gentle ease formula. but when its really bad I give him one ounce of water and I take a stool softener and breastfeed him. Always works!

    mommy2mylesNchace – Formula does tend to make babies a little more constipated but not always. I’m sorry your little one is. There are a few things that you can try. Pump your babies legs and give a tummy massage. Start at the top near the chest and firmly but softly rub down and along the sides. My son loved it. He got massages even though he wasn’t constipated. If that doesn’t work you can stimulate his bum with a cotton swab and vasaline. Be very careful. Don’t put it far up inside. Just around the sides. If that doesn’t work then I’d talk to your doctor. They may want you to give juice or a depository.

    Everyone seem to think that apple juice is best but what if the child doesn’t like juice at all. He’s 9 1/2 months.

    geo – try brown sugar dissolved in some warm water – like a fairly strong solution – see if that goes down?
