Breastfeeding and my 4 month old baby boy hasn't had a stool movement in 2 days. Should I worry? What should I do? I've tried prune juice to help.
Breast or formula?: Breast fed infants can go a little every feed or overflow a diaper once a week. If it is soft when they go I don't worry about it.

I read eons ago that there may actually be a decreased incidence of colon CA in heavy coffee drinkers... ...Read more

Maintaining: Regularity naturally involves doing what works for you. Lots of fresh leafy vegetables, and fruits with skins on (apple a day) and dried fruits like prunes and apricots work quite well.
