Constipation/babies: It is never normal 4baby2 have blood around stools. That constiaption needs 2be treated.We do not use castor oil in babies. Maybe ur baby is taking in too much millk ¬ enough fiber, h2o.Fruit try using mineral oil- 2 teaspoons at bed time with some apple juice&limt the millk intake to 12 oz/day. If ur baby is still on baby bottle, discontinue it & milk intake will diminish while weaning, . ...Read more

Castor oil: While a great old wives' tale castor oil is not an effective way to get into labor. For the hemorrhoids use Tucks and sit on a bag of frozen peas. Castor oil gives you diarrhea. To bring on labor, walk, have intercourse with the father of the baby, get adequate rest and nutrition. ...Read more

Can castor oil packs on the liver and milk thistle hav adverse side effects? I tried both a month ago and ever since been having pain in my liver area

Probably not: Milk thistle (silybum) is an herbal supplement that contains silymarin, a flavenoid compound that is said to reduce liver inflammation - but this effect is not well defined. Side effects include occasional stomach upset and diarrhea. Allergic reactions can occur. Neither silybum nor castor oil should cause abdominal pain for a month. You may want to get this pain checked out by your doctor. ...Read more

I am 37 weeks pregnant and am 1 1/2 centimeters dialated I have had constant contractions for 3 weeks and I have had the steroid shots for the babies lungs is it safe to take castor oil to induce labor i can't sleep get sick when i eat and am in pain from

No. : No. You should not take castor oil prior to reaching your due date. Remember that your baby is 2 weeks younger than the number of weeks that you are pregnant. Your baby is not ready to be born. Once your due date has arrived, you may consult your doctor about taking castor oil to induce pregnancy. Do not do this without consulting your doctor. Remember that castor oil is a laxative. It has a bad taste, can cause abdominal cramping, diarrhea and vomiting. If you do not want to feel these symptoms, then you should avoid this. Talk to your doctor about things to do to help you be more comfortable. It is very common for women to be uncomfortable during the last few weeks of pregnancy. Your baby needs more time in your tummy. ...Read more
