  • My daughter had a hard time going poop when she was tiny. I put her across my knees on her belly and alternated a warm water bottle either under her belly or on her back. The warmth and pressure on her belly and back usually helped.

  • Trying all things above, I found mixing babies pear juice and water, half and half or even 1/3 pear juice and 2/3 water once a day helped get my baby more regular

  • I used a little karo syrup mixed into a bottle of breast milk (or what you like to use) and what had built up over filled the diaper, but he wasn't fussy, and in pain anymore, so I was happy. You can try that since it was already suggested, but if you can also ask a doctor. I asked my son's Ped. and she said that both breastfed and bottle fed babies can go about 3-4 days with out pooping. Still ask your doctor though.

  • an age would be help as would what kinds of food/formula you feed. Some formulas with iron can couse constipation. If you have introduced juices then prune juice would help out. up fiber if you are feeding solids. Feed more whole grains and veggies/fruit. If all else fails call your ped in the am
