  • my doctor prescribed a stool softner, and I was just not interested in eating a lot of spicy foods, had a lot of rice, or corn, and well just gotta see the doctor

  • Prune juice or Prune Smart juice do the trick for me.  Don't take ex-lax it's not safe for the baby. But stool softeners are OK.
