Doctor insights on:
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

Don't take a chance! still in doubt, call the poison control center. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not a great idea: at 16 years of age you should not be using laxatives at all without a physician supervision. I doubt that your physician would advise the use of any oil based laxatives. I think you would do well with 8-10 glasses of water daily, bran, cereals, fresh fruits and vegetables. ...Read more
