  • It should help. Little Tummies laxative drops help too. So does Miralax. Don't know how long it's been for him, but Miralax can take up to 3 days to see results. Make sure he's drinking plenty of water & increase his fiber & activity levels.

  • YES. however in my opinion corn syrup works much faster. see if a neighbor has some to borrow, it's silly to buy a big jug when you'll only need a few spoonfulls

    It really doesn't help to keep posting the same question. 

    Call the doc or pharmacist and they can suggest something appropriate.

  • P diet. Peaches, pears, prunes.

    Apple juice is part of the BRAT diet, which is for diarrhea (Bananas, rice, apples, toast)
