  • if your child is severely constipated i would say less then an ounce and three ounces watered down....its not something you should give a lot of or you are going to have a case of severe diarhea. but check with your doctor or nurse they can answer better because they know you and your child.

  • For a 10 week old one ounce of juice mixed with one ounce of water, or even one ounce of juice mixed in her formula, should work. And only once a day should be ok, you can do it twice if necessary. If it doesn't work after 3 days call your ped and they will have suggestions on what to do next.
