  • How old is your baby? My daughter has had a lot of constipation problems and her Dr told me to give her prune juice mixed with water and it works everytime! Or if your baby is still on baby food feed him baby prunes! But not bananas because the cause constipation! Hope that helps

  • It not not unusual, or harmful, for a breastfed baby to go more than a week without a bowel movement.

  • What are her symptoms, age, and diet?

  • Depending on your answer to my questions, you may not need to do a thing. TRUE constipation in infants is rare.
