  • I use fiber one yogurt mixed with banana's. I can't think of anything for lunch or dinner though, make sure he drinking a lot of water, that helps.

  • My DD has constipation problems and eats tons of fruit and veggies. I give her 6 oz of prune juice a day and this is the only thing that has kept her regular. If we have a day she won't drink her prune juice, she gets really stopped up.

  • Oh, the doctor put my DD on Miralax too (we was only 16 months), but when I got her to drink the prune juice I never had to use the Miralax again. Just don't give Miralax on the same day you give prune juice or you'll have a big mess on your hands.

  • Oatmeal too. I made the mistake of giving my baby a whole jar of prunes with oatmeal. Ooooooh, buddy, did we have the poopy diapers that day.
