Could my baby constipated?

Yes: Babies who are passing hard, formed stools and seem to have pain with stools may be constipated. Frequency of bowel movements is usually not important, if the stool is soft and the baby has no pain or straining. See your pediatrician if you suspect your baby has pain with bowel movements or if you see blood in the stool.

How can I cure my baby's constipation?

It depends...: This answer depends on whether the baby is breastfed, how is the baby feeding, is the baby gaining weight well, is the baby eating solid foods, is the baby's abdomen distended? How often does the child have a bm? Is the bm soft? Are they rock hard? Does the baby cry when he has a bm? The answers to these questions are necessary to determine true constipation in a baby which is quite rare.

What are some tips for managing my baby's constipation?

Prune juice: I prefer to try prune juice (or prune baby food) first! babies love the sweet taste, and giving some every day can keep their stools soft. In younger infants, corn syrup, about 1-2 tsp, added to formula, can loosen stools as well. Breast fed babies very rarely have hard stools, so it's not usually an issue for them.

What are alternative ways to relieve sexual desire besides masturbation?

Dr. Pamela Pappas

The most obvious: The most obvious way to relieve sexual desire besides masturbation, is to have sex with a willing partner. Sometimes sexual desire can become compulsive though, relating more to obsessive anxiety than to genuine sexual desire. If you're wondering about your own situation, consulting with your family physician or a psychiatrist may help.

No: Masturbation is a normal animal activity. There are no health reasons to masturbate or not to masturbate. It doesn't make you more or less manly.
