  • Fruit juice is good. Orange, apple prune if she will drink it.

    To avoid constipation, make sure she eats more fruits and veggies.

  • I agree, my 1 year old had a bout a few weeks ago, it was terrible! I felt so bad for him... I gave him 2 diluted sippy cups of prune juice 2 days in a row and he was farting a lot for those couple days, but he finally went and it wasn't rock solid. Since then we've discovered that he will drink really well with sippy cups with straws, and now we have no problem keeping him hydrated. I don't use the prune juice unless i have to now, only because he was soooo gassy, lol
