Answer: Milk is easier to digest for the tiny systems than the solids like rice, fruits etc. Thus it is common for your baby to suffer (not necessarily, in all cases). Dehydration may cause constipation in babies. Some medicines, for example, iron tonics, are also known to cause constipation. Some of the natural ways to relieve constipation includes the intake of fruits and fruit juices, which are very effective as they are rich source of fiber and water. the baby is on solids and suffer from constipation, these measures can be taken. 1. Give warm water to the baby at regular intervals , 1-2 tsp one time is more than enough. 2. Boil raisins in water and strain it out, this water can be given too 3. Give papaya to the baby . 4. Make oats a part of his food intake. The rich fibre in it helps here 5. Give fruits / fruit juices of all fruits starting with the letter P like papaya, prune.

    After one month, babies should continue to have bowel movements everyday. If your baby isn't passing motions everyday, it doesn’t mean your milk supply is inadequate. To help your baby pass motions, you could try doing the following: 1. Check if the baby is receiving iron supplements. Iron supplements can cause constipation in some babies. This could be a part of the multivitamin your child is receiving. An exclusively breastfed baby doesn't need any supplements since breast milk is a complete meal with all necessary vitamins and minerals. Expose your child to sunlight often and you can even avoid vitamin d supplements if there’s no existing deficiency. 2. Increase your probiotic and prebiotic intake. Your child will get both of them via your breast milk. This can help the baby have a daily bowel movement. Fermented foods such as home made naturally fermented Indian pickles, Dahi, kefir, kimchi, rice ganji ( cooked rice soaked in water overnight) are a good source of probiotics. We should also look at the way our bodies make probiotics – using prebiotics. Prebiotics are food for the probiotics which come from fiber found in a variety of plants, whole grains and legumes. Onion and garlic keep appearing in lists of good sources of prebiotics.
