Answer: Hello dear. After 12 months, your baby can have as much as 6 ounces of juice a day to treat constipation. If yourbaby is old enough to eat a variety of solid foods, cut down on constipating foods like rice, bananas, and cooked carrots.
Some Ways to Relieve Baby's Constipation-:
First of all and actually most important is to Increase Water Consumption. Whether your baby is breast or bottle fed, it's easy to assume she's getting enough water due to a primarily liquid diet.
Some other options are-:
1.) Offer Fruit Juice
2.) Feed High-Fiber Foods
3.) Give Your Baby “Bicycle Legs”
4.) Try a Different Brand of Formula
5.) Take Your Baby's Temperature
6.) Massage Her Tummy
7.) Give Him a Warm Bath
Bananas, rice cereal, carrots, and cheese are a mainstay of most infant diets--they also tend to have a binding effect on stool. Foods like apricots, pears, prunes, peaches, and plums are better choices to help avoid constipation
Hope it helps.

Remedies for ur baby:
Boost your child's fiber intake. Give her plenty of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Offer apricots, plums, peas, beans, broccoli and, of course, prunes. If she doesn't like the taste of prunes, try adding prune juice to her milk: Just 1 ounce of prune juice in half a cup of milk is very effective.
