  • Yes it will help greatly! (it's fine to give an 11 month juice, whoever disagrees is off their rocker! lol)

  • We gave my baby prune juice since he was like 6 months. It was about 4 ounces and the gerber brand. We still give it to him...

    I think apple juice will work too

  • I honestly don't know. I always increased the liquids my kids drank (mostly water). They seem to be more like to be constipated in the heat of the summer. I also gave them prunes. Sorry I don't have a yes or no answer for you! Apple juice would help just by getting more liquids in your child.

  • It always worked for my kids! And YES, water it down! Straight juice isn't good for anyone's stomach, especially a child that young though - it can cause indigestion and heartburn, as well as other things long term.

  • Prune juice would work better!!! Just watch out for the blow out to come!

  • it could help.
    try pear juice if you have that .. that always worked wonders when DD was constipated.

    and i didn't water it down when she was that age. good luck.

  • Yes is well as pureed prunes. I've found that works the best.
