So after giving him the prune juice...when should I expect a poop?

DS is constipated (read: yesterday his poop was a thick paste...today it was like adult poop!).
Pedi instructed me to give him a Muralax(sp?) and prune juice concoction.  He just drank that a little bit ago and fell asleep.  How long until the next poop do you think?  Honestly I am sceered of it....is it going to be a major blow-out??Tongue Tied

    I gave DD some for her first bottle (around 6am) and she pooped by that afternoon.

    I did a 1/2 oz of prune juice once a few weeks ago when DD was constipated, and it was PSYCHOTIC - literally to the top of her onesie.

    DD is actually going to be having a dose when she wakes up since she randomly didn't poop yesterday.

    You should expect something within 24 hours. When I gave it to DD she pooped about 2 hours after. Oh and I always have the bath ready Stick out tongue

    That is scary. Be sure to have a towel under him at all times, or wrapped around him. And please report back ASAP, cause i'm dying to know how bad it is.

    I gave dd a suppository on Tuesday, I can't imagine how her body stored that much poop.  I would leave him in a onesie or just his diaper, it probably won't be long if he also drank muralax.

    sorry, but it will end quickly, at least it did for dd, the whole episode took about 5 minutes. She was a very happy baby afterwards and returned to her normal sleep patterns.
