Okay have any mamas out there used prune juice to make your baby poop. Not like a cup of it but a couple drops in a dropper.. Ive heard other people have done it but i need more opinions. My lo is only 2 weeks so i dont want to just give him anything without correct information. Thanks !!

Sugar water or Apple juice. Prune juice is a little too harsh. I won't even give my 2 yo prune juice.

Are you sure baby is constipated? Some healthy babies will have only one bowel movement a week. Breastfed babies tend to go 5-7 days without a bowel movement and it be completely normal. If your breastfeeding, you could try eating some prunes and see if it will help baby once it passes though your milk.

You could also try baby prune food. Dip the pacifier into it. That's what I did with my son. It helped him.

My ped told me kayro syrup. It is dark corn syrup. Mix 2 teaspoons with breast milk or formula. Worked like magic for my baby. 2 times a day until baby has a good movement.

If you drink it yourself and breastfeed it will help :) at least for me it did!

Mainly go with what your pediatrician said; if you do prune juice water it down but I always stuck with apple juice and it worked for me.

Breastfed babies can go up to 10 days without pooping.

One ounce of prune juice. Apple juice can constipate more

My son was constipated from day one lol I talked to my doc and she said the formula I was using was to strong for him to start him off with a sensitivity formula and it works!!! She also told me it was ok to give him juice that young!! I would have never guessed so I gave him 1oz pear juice and 1oz water once a day and it helped a lot.

we used Karo, our ped. said the light, not "lite" or dark. a tsp in their bottle once a day should help.

I'd talk to your pediatrician before bc they are so young. It's more about the consistency of the poop rather than the frequency. They may not even be constipated

My daughter is now 8 months and it was one time when she was 2 months and she didn't poop for a week straight, but she's breastfed and breastfed babies can go a while without pooping but when she exceeds the time limit I always warm up a little castor oil and rub on the bottom of her feet and around her navel and give her just a little caro syrup in her milk. It works!
