I gave my 5 month old 1 ounce of prune juice?

My 5 month old is 18 pounds, and constipated. I didn't water down the prune juice, I just gave him it straight - have you done this before?..can that hurt him?
last time I put a bit of water in with the prune juice is barely worked

  • I think that should be ok if it doesnt work though you should take him to his dr.

  • shouldnt hurt him, i gave it to my daughter but I'd be prepared for it to work...alot..LOL But if he is continually constipated consult your ped. because my daughter is and needs daily stool softener.

  • I agree with rhonda111787 - be prepared!! BUT if it doesn't do anything to help, you should definitely call his doc. He should be ok with that small amount. Hopefully he will feel better soon! :)
