A female asked:
Can my 7 month baby have half the amount of liquid glycerin fleet suppository? he's been constipated on and off for about two weeks.

No: fleets liquid is a little strong
I would get a glycerine suppository,
maybe half a pediatric glycerine suppository
like pediatric dulcolax suppository which is gentle and will lubricate the anus as the glycerine dissolves
make sure he is not reacting to the foods you may have added in his diet
