Constipated baby.. This is not normal

He just had a poop that I had to help him pass because it was packed so tightly. I've been trying prune juice, but it doesn't seem to be helping. Any thoughts??

  • Is he breastfed or formula fed? With formula, pelleting can just be a sign that you need to switch to an easier to digest formula, one of the gentle lines will often help. If he's breastfed, pelleting is a sign of dehydration and needs to be addressed pro
