Question: My baby is constipated ? What to do ??
Answer: 5 months old is a growth period and it may very well be that your baby is actually making use of practically all of the nutrition you’re giving her. Especially if she is breastfed, not pooping for a few days (up to a week or more actually) is completely normal at her age. Fully breastfed babies do not get constipated – they practically can’t, because they absorb everything in the breast milk. If a fully breastfed baby stops pooping, it is because they digest everything.
If you do believe that your baby is constipated and need a remedy for a 4-month-old, a few teaspoons of prune juice can be very effective.
Apple juice (NOT apple sauce) can also help
