Lots of moms feel the constipation is a function of frequency. It's really a function of the consistency of BM's. If they are soft like peanut butter, she is not constipated. If she is constipated, you can give her karo syrup or mineral oil. Miralax could be given if she is bottle fed. Some juices, apple in particular, can be constipating as the pectin in it is binding in some people. Increasing fluids can help too. At 5 months, It best to check with a doctor before trying anything. If she has started solids, you might want to give her pureed prunes.
