Infant constipation. We have tried prune juice oatmeal and soy milk and nothing is working. Can we use a stool softener and what foods to avoid.?
Natural plugs: Apple sauce, bananas & rice cereal are the main constipators in most infants. Peaches, pears, plums & barley cereal are usually helpful in loosening them. Prune or apple juice (regular adult, not dilute baby) given in amounts of 1-2 ounces 1-2 x/day for a minimum of 3 days will usually loosen a kid. Good luck. ...Read more
Maybe not: Oats and oatmeal are listed as a gluten-containing grain. More recent reports say that oats don't have the gluten proteins but have small amounts of another protein that may cause reactions in some celiac disease patients.

Isit healthier to feed kids oatmeal everyday with guar gum or evaporated cane juice? Does all ecjuice contain sucralose or has to be listed ingredient

Sure R Side effects: I find that one of the most troublesome and consistent side effects following a bowl of good piping hot, steaming, delicious oatmeal together with dried fruit toppings, blueberries, and UNprocessed (but pasteurized) honey, using non fat steamed milk is that I want at least 1 more bowl...and if there's time....I want another one....especially now the weather is getting a little cooler. ...Read more
Oatmeal is a healthy whole-grain food
it's fine to have a little sweetener to make it taste better.
Some people think honey is more healthy than sugar or brown sugar because it's a sweetener that's been part of humans' diet for > 30, 000 years. Contrast this with refined sugar being around for < 5000 years.
Not sure there's science to support honey v sugar, but whole grain oatmeal is great! ...Read more
