constipation

My little guy hasn't gone in 4 days. He cries when he tries and I am stumped. Any advice? I have tried prunes already.

Re: constipation

  • Juice, a warm bath and a rectal thermometer work too. Prunes do it for ds but it usually takes a day or two then its a huge blow out. Watch out!
  • Could he be dehydrated? It's been so hot here and there was a couple days last week when I didn't offer enough water and her poops were pellet-like and she seemed to be straining when trying to go.

  • Real oatmeal...like adult oats. I usually give them to Gio every two days for breakfast, just one serving (1/2 cup of oats, 1 cup of water, microwave for 2 minutes), and he usually poops later that day.

  • Peaches and pears have worked for O.

    I'm not sure, but I've always heard that watermelon is a diuretic and can actually dehydrate.
  • Did he start WCM already?  When my ODS started it, he got really constipated.  Had to switch him to soy.
