When baby is constipated you will want to bring him relief as quickly as possible. Here are some ways you can help relieve baby’s constipation.
1. Fruit Juice
If baby is old enough to drink fruit juice, a small amount of pear, apple or prune juice can help relieve constipation. Prune juice is high in sorbitol, a natural sugar that gets the intestines moving.
2. Warm Bath
A warm bath can help to relax the rectal muscles and make passing stool easier.
Gently massage baby’s tummy or gently rotate his legs in a clockwise direction to help relieve discomfort.
4. Changes to Diet
If you’re formula feeding, talk to your doctor about switching to one that may be easier on your child’s tummy. If he is old enough for solids, try gradually increasing his intake of fiber-rich foods such as whole grains, prunes, pears or beans.
5. Mommy’s Bliss Constipation Ease
