  • Fruit juice (100% juice diluted with water) or pureed prunes should clear it right up.

  • At this age I used to put some pureed prunes in with the formula.... worked awesome! Plus it was another fruit/veggie serving for the day. Karo syrup is corn syrup... terrible for babies. All that sugar really just gives them diarrhea. ;o(

  • No homeopathic remedies.... Doctor check up for me.

    That's just me though.

  • My daughter has been this way since 2 weeks old I had to stimulate her. Then we moved to juices now I am having to give her Miralax. Depends on how old baby is! Try some warm diluted prune juice first if baby is over 3 months 1oz to 1 oz water. Hope your baby feels better and gets back on track!
