  • Have you changed baby's eating habits (introduced anything new, drinking less)? At 4 months you can either try a bit of warm water or diluted juice. Gerber has prune juice mixes (just add more water).

    Do NOT use any type of Karo as it may contain botulism which is deadly in infants.

  • Do not try to gave plum juice cause it is not very good for her digestive system . Try loosen up by using the q-tip and apply a little petrolium jell and try to dap a little it around her anus or go in just a little .it. It will help her . If she on formula try less powder and a little more water . For example : 2oz for 1 scoop try 2.5oz for 1 scoop

  • Are you breastfeeding? If so you can increase your intake of the (P - pear, prune, peach juice) and pass the fiber on to your LO through your BM.

    Also you can massage babies lower stomach, in a warm (but not hot) bath.
