  • I always give my babes dilutated pear juice. Works like a charm.

  • that sounds like it might just be gas.
    you really should ask your DR before you give anything though.
    I gave alittle gerber prune juice though at that young, just a few sips.

  • his poop looks like a hamsters :( The DR told me to give him Karo Syrup, I did and nothing. She said to give him prune juice at least 1oz BUT I've been going crazy looking for it and no where to be found :(

  • When karo syrup didn't work my daughters pediatrician said to use miralax. I can't remember the exact dosage so call and ask ur pediatrician. This worked like a charm for my daughter. Bol!

  • You could also just try water too until you get to the store tomorrow. Just be careful because they can choke on it

  • I've checked in the baby isles and I haven't seen it. I've tried apple juice and nothing. But thank you for all the help.
