What do i do if my baby is constipated?

He is taking a vitamin once a day, the doctor cut the dose down because i noticed he was constipated, is there a vitamin w/ a stool softener?

  • How old is he? I didn't give vitamins for the first year because of this...

  • he is 4months but was borna preemie. bday June 3 should have been born 9/16. The doctor prescribed vitamins to help him grow and to replenish his system of minerals and vitamins lost.

  • how old, maybe you can substitute fluids with pedialyte. there are suppositories also, but make sure he/she has enough fluids.

  • oh good idea! I have been substituting his water in his formula at night w/ chamonille tea per the doctors orders. This helps him sleep at night. he has his day mixed up.

  • this just an idea, maybe those baby gas drops will help push it along, they move gas. that's my idea, don't take my word for it.

  • My six month old was constipated last night and we called our on call doc and she said to get baby pear juice and dilute it with water. 2 oz pear juice with 2 oz water. Poor guy was so backed up.
