7. Apple Juice

apple juice

You can give your baby a small amount of apple juice to help relieve constipation as it has a mild laxative effect. It contains pectin that encourages regular bowel movements.

However, avoid feeding your baby applesauce, which may contain a higher level of pectin that could firm up stools and lead to constipation.


You can give 2 to 4 ounces of apple juice once a day to toddlers and 4 to 6 ounces once a day to older infants. If possible, extract the juice at home from organic apples, instead of buying prepackaged juice.


8. Prunes


Prunes are a high-fiber fruit that can help fight constipation in infants. Their natural laxative property helps regulate bowel movements.

  • For infants up to 6 months of age, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of prune juice to ½ cup of breast or formula milk or just plain water. Give it to your baby once or twice a day to regulate bowel movements.
  • For older infants, add diluted prune juice to your baby’s formula before feeding.
  • If your baby is eating solid foods, you can try pureed prunes.

Note: Consult your doctor before giving prune juice to your baby as it contains a natural bowel irritant.

  1. u can also mix tomatoe juice with orange juice honey.give 1-2 teaspoons 3 to 4 times aday until d child is able to pass out stool

  2. we had this problem with one of our children and it was terrible. And it wasn’t just one time and you dealt with it; that would have been manageable. It would occur some what frequently. We found out that most baby food was rice based. After we realized that we looked for non rice filler based baby foods (more natural/organic) or made ourselves. The problem did not come back. It was the rice (it “compacts” lol) funny, but not funny with baby laying with them screaming in a warm tube and trying to give a suppository (not fun)

  3. Aren’t you not.suppose to give babies honey? I want to try something since the probiotic has stopped her from crying all day and night, but still have pain ans crying when she tried to poop.
