    Help her get some exercise. ... Massage your baby's belly. ... If you feed your baby formula, ask her doctor about switching to a different brand. ... Add a little prune juice to formula or breast milk if your baby is at least 4 weeks old.

    If the constipation continues you can give gripe water. U can also give Luke warm water . You can also put some dried grapes in warm water and give that water on the next day.

Answer: Breast fed babies almost never get constipated where as for formula fed babies usually face this problem. Do the bicycle legs. Take babies temperature. Massage her tummy. Place the baby on her back n rub with ur plam in clock wise motion. For a minute or 2. Give ur baby a warm bath the thing is the hot water will soothe ur baby. Getting him to relax so he can let go of everything he s holding. Never use a laxative as babies are too little they can get seriously dehydrated and lead to other complications.
Answer: Give massage clock wise

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
