Hello, My 5 month old is so constipated, i am not sure what to do, i have tried giving water, pear juice, apple juice, prune juice and nothing works, he stays pushing for a good while but nothing comes out.

Have you tried putting vasaline on a q-tip and inserting just a little bit into their a__s. I havent had to do this but I read that this helps a little. Also have you called your ped. They may have other ideas. Hope I was able to help a little.

I hadn't heard of that, i am kind of scared to do it, my ped said as long as he wasn't fussy not to worry..

When all else fails Audrey, you can get the baby enemas from fleet (liquid suppositories or you can use regular ones) and they work great.

Thanks Bonnie, I will go and get some today.....

They are no fun to give ;P but they do the jon and are not harmful or addicting. I had to use them daily when Mason was on hypo-allergenic formula as it made him constipated. Just make sure you get the infant ones, lol

Wow! Sounds like my day. My poor dd was so constipated. Anyhow, the nurse at my peds office suggested I just give her half of a suppository (half lengthwise), and it worked out great. She pooped soooooo much, I have no idea where she was hiding it all. My LO wouldn't drink juice so there was no way that was going to help. Good luck!

try warming prune babyfood up and giving it to him , this usually works like a charm !

LOL PBJ...I had to use the liquid ones. Mason kept squeezing the glycerin one back out of his b___t cheeks. He was having no part of it ;)...BTW Audrey, those things work FAST so be ready!
