I've never given prune juice to my kids...I don't like the taste so I doubt they would too.
I always gave them Karo Corn Syrup mixed with water. It works much faster & they are more likely to drink it.
If you child is taking formula, he/she should have 1 ounce of water a day. That always helped prevent it with my kids.
Our pedi also recommended prune juice for constipation. We've been putting 1 tsp in her bottles (3oz of formula) and it seems to be helping. She's been pretty regular for the past day so we're slowing down on the prune juice.
She doesn't seem to like the taste though, I will admit. She drinks her bottle much slower when it has the juice in it.
I had the same issue and was concerned because I'm breastfeeding. The nurse at the ped's office suggested apple juice and water, 50/50. I was hesitant but tried it 30/70. She said it may take a few days but it worked instantly! She also said you can try over the counter glycerin suppositories; I'm sticking with the juice...
Prune juice works really well for DS and he likes the flavor. I mix it with at least one ounce of BM or formula, then keep a rag handy in case of spit up.
