  • Tummy massage, bicycle legs, tummy time, infants friend.

  • Prune juice or go to pharmacist and you can get syrup which will help Bub open Bowles.

  • I tried chia seeds and it did the trick

  • Latulose is a constipation medicine brought over the counter Thant is safe to use with all ages, I used it for my son at 3 months old and only had to use it the once.

  • Good luck, plenty of water!

  • We diluted prune juice but had little success, a little brown sugar in warm water worked for us.

  • Give him a little honey on his water. Hope it can help.

  • Make sure he has more than enough water!

  • roll his legs up in circular motion to get his bowels functioning properly

  • I hope you were successful!

  • there are some good comments here

  • ask a doctor and they will help

  • we got Actilax from the chemist and gave her more water ( had to put some formula in it too otherwise she would look at me as if to say what the hell is this crap? )

  • depending on age, try a little watered down prune juice, works wonders.

  • depends on age but water – if feeding solids find fibrous meals to feed and water
