I have a 6 week old and the last 3 weeks or so my baby girl has been very constipated.

Hey-


I know I'm probably too late but you can dilute either prune juice or apple juice with some water to help with constipation. I'm not sure exact amounts though. Did you check on your playgroup board to see if anyone had a similiar problem? I hope she's feeling better!

Hey Kirsten,

Thank you for the tip on the constipation issue. I will remember that. Unfortunately, in her case, she has had this problem for over 3 weeks. Im trying to get her regulated. The doc just keeps saying to give her laxatives, but I think its really important for her to do it on her own, ya know? So far with the Nestle formula, she has been pooping on her own every morning. Hopefully she will start to go more often now as her body begins to adjust. So I hope!!
I just wrote to your SIL and told her Id take some cans.
Thank you very much for the offer and for your help!

Kristy.
