Prune Juice Regularly

Can you give your lo prune juice on a regular basis? We would like to as our lo is totally uncomfortable if he doesn't poop everyday!! If he doesn't poop all day he'll be in his bed at night, half asleep, grunting like he's trying to poop! Sometimes I'll look over and his feet will be up in the air LOL!! So, is it ok to give him prune juice regularly?

Yes, I started giving my lo prune juice mixed with his formula 3x a week starting at 3 months old. He is also prone to constipation. You can try 1oz 100% prune juice to 1oz water if he will take it, otherwise mixed 1oz in a bottle of formula 1x a day 3x a week. Once my son was on solids I started giving him pureed prunes 3-4x a week. Now he goes every day 6am like clockwork. Solids also tends to make them more regular.

An alternative to prune juice is 100% pear juice.

I just asked my dr about this today because my dd is always constipated as well and he told me that everyday is fine as long as she didn't start rejecting her milk. I mix 1/2 oz with her bottle as needed but usually that is everyday or every other day. And I only do it once a day at the most.
