6 month olds poop

My 6 month old son has not pooped in 2 days. Before his not pooping he was pooping 5-6 times a day. Eventhough he was pooping that many times it was marble size and VERY hard. Do to that my Doc. told me to give him pruns and jucie. I have been doing so. Then he stopped all of a sudden. I don't know what to do. His Doc. is just telling me to "watch him and keep up the pruns and jucie" . I hope someone can help me.

  • What is his diet like otherwise?

  • Make sure he is getting plenty of fluids, and you can even give him some water. Avoid some of the more binding baby foods for a while like bananas and applesauce. Go for veggies instead and cereal since it is high in fiber.
