Stinky, I mean really stinky toots!

DD is EBF and hasn't pooped in 4 days. She's straining to go and now has the rankest adult smelling gas so I know she's constipated. I bought some apple prune juice this morning. She's never had anything but breast milk. Do I just dilute it with water or add it to breast milk?

ETA we've never had this problem before and I've already tried the rectal thermometer and qtip tricks but without success.

  • My pediatrician said that at 6 months we can start giving DS water, so I say it's ok to dilute with water. Good luck though, I know that's miserable, I hate feeling helpless.

  • DS was constipated a few days ago after all the meds he has been talking this week. We mixed pureed prunes with his sweet potatoes and gave him water in a bottle and a few hours later he went! LOL....blew out technically...but he is loose now! Hope it works for you! 

    Oh, and water is fine.

  • My bubbo has this problem a lot. We mix pear puree into his apples, carrots and cereal. Usually he goes within a couple hours. BUT he is formula fed, so i don't know how much that changed things. But i would just ad an ounce to a bottle personally. That's what my pedi suggested originally but we decided to try this route first.

    Try giving him jar food i give my lo sweet potatoes or green beans and it helps out quite a bit of poop diapers!

  • You can dilute it or add it to the breast milk. DS has been constipated twice - once I just gave him a couple dropper fulls of prune juice right into his mouth before a bottle and the other time I did an 1oz of juice in 3oz (though he didn't drink it all). If you are doing solids though I agree with trying pureed prunes, pears, or a green veggie! Hope LO feels better soon. It is sad when they get backed up and uncomfortable! 


  • I just ordered some prune pouches from Amazon because DD went 3 days without pooping and I was getting a little worried! She ended up pooping and then the next day pooped 3 times in one day. I think she was just getting used to the change in texture after starting solids.

    GL!
