I agree with rkoloms, make sure your baby's actually constipated first. I went through this with my dd, sometimes they just don't poop. However, 1oz prune juice to 3oz water is usually the remedy. But be sure to read the ingredients on the prune juice you pick up! I found the best choice is Sunsweet's no-sugar added prune juice. The ingredients shouldn't have anything else in it besides prunes and water! Especially NO high fructose corn syrup. Only give this once a day.
If this doesn't work, you might have to do a warm-water enema as a last resort.
