Prune Juice For 3 Month Old

1 Replies
squished - September 25

Our lo is constipated I think. He normally poops every day, but in the last 5 days he's pooped 2 times and not much at all. We do normally give him 1/2 ounce of pear juice every other day and that seems to keep him regular but not lately. He is uncomfortable as he's been grunting, straining and is definetly more fussy. I thought that I'd step it up a notch and give him prune juice and water to help clear him out. Is prune juice ok for a 3 month old?

I gave my ds prune juice at around 3-4 months. I tried the 1oz water/1oz 100% prune juice but he wouldn't drink it. So, I added 1oz prune juice to his formula. It seemed to help. I gave it to him once every 3-4 days. I think some lo's can develop a bum rash from the prune juice so you could try pear juice. My ds never got a rash though. Then at 5 months I started giving his 1/2 jar prune puree every 2nd-3rd day.
