  • Probiotics were the only thing that helped my son. He was on them daily from 1 month old til he was off formula, around 15 months.

  • I give my little man a waffle with maple syrup. Seriously, something in the syrup makes him go. He's 13 months old.

  • Is he breastfed? The usual solution is to back off on solids (especially grains/cereals) and just to breastfeed, it's a natural laxative. Probiotics work well too, as well as aloe vera juice.

  • Pear juice also works and tastes a lot better than prune juice. :)

  • remember APPP
    apricots pears prunes plums

    the fruit is better than juice. juice as too much sugar and no fiber benefits
