Baby Has Constipation
My 7 week old baby has constipation. She was fine for the first 2 weeks. But now its really bad. My doctor told me to give her Karo Syrup which I tried and it didn’t work.
The hospital visiting nurse also told me to mix half tea spoon brown sugar with 2 oz baby water. I tried that also and it didn’t work. A friend of mine said she mixed a little milk of magnesia in her babies formula and it helped. I haven’t tried that. My sister too said I should mix apple juice with water.
What I did was, I got the front section that is used to get the mucus out of the nose. I put warm water in it with Vasciline on the tip of the tube and on my babies bottom and than push the water in her rectum. She was able to go then. I don't want her to get used to that option. Please help me, I don’t know what to do. She will be 6 weeks in 2 days.
