Emma is now 8 months old. When she was born she used to go every 4-5 days, but she wasn't constipated, it was just her schedule. Now though, she is constipated. She is on formula, eats baby food 1-2 per day, and is very active with crawling, rolling, always wants to move. My ped recommended grape juice but just like Sofia, she will not drink juice. I'm staying away from carrots, sweet potatoes, potatoes, bananas, and cereal. She is eating prunes, pears, apples, apricots, squash, but still constipated. I'm massaging her tummy several times a day. I've even tried suppositories with no real luck.
So, any of you BTDT moms have any good advice for me? Anyone tried laxatives, and if so what kind and how much? I really feel for her, sometimes she starts straining like she needs to go but nothing comes out. :(
