  • I know this will sound weird but my 5 year olds dr. told me to do it when she was a baby. When she got real constipated he told me to barely put a rectal thermometer in her rectum. The baby's automatic reaction is to push the thermometer out. I did it with my daughter a few times, it really works. Just watch out they can push hard and spew a bit. Remember barely put it in do not go to far.

  • Prune juice, lots of fruit juice makes mine get the runs.

  • Symptoms please. And diet. I need specifics. Last BM was when? And what was it like? What are your concerns?

    Karo is not recommended for infants. Their website states this, as it can carry a risk for botulism poisoning, just like honey.
