Constipated.... JULY 2008

Shawn is having really hard poos and i feel so bad for him. He gets it out but it is hard. I've tried some normal apple juice and i really don't want to use prune juice because i just want to loosen the consistence a little i don't want it too loose. I was just wondering what i could do sense he isn't completely plugged up.

Pear juice or a piece of a pear in a mesh feeder does well.

Peaches always did the trick for us here.

Hope he's feeling better very soon.

plenty of fruit and water should do the trick. I'd avoid bananas and baby rice if he is constipated too.

We gave him a few small spoon fulls of prunes last night around 6:30 but so far nothing has happened.

I mix prune juice with baby oatmeal to help soften the poop. that way it's not straight prune juice but it gives the same effect.

good luck, I know how rough it is.

He did poop this morning and it was a little softer but still pretty firm. It seemed to help him a little bit.
