Is there a good home remedy for constipation?

Depends

Constipation
Home remedies include regular exercise, naturel fiber found in fruit, veggies and grains, prunes and hydration. however, if one has used laxatives regularly, these remedies may no longer be effective, as the bowel gets used to needing laxatives to work properly . If this is the case, talk to your doctor about retraining your bowel.

What exactly is the most effective home remedy for constipation?

Diet changes

Fecal_retention
Try to increase the water and fiber in your diet. You can do that by eating more fruit and vegetables on a daily basis. Avoid things that are dehydrating like soda and alcohol. If all else fails you can take a mild stool softener every day, like metamucil, fibercon, or even prunes.

is there a good home remedy for a child with constipation?

Proper diet

Constipation
A healthy child is not constipated. Look to the diet as I have emphasized in many answers. Diet for children in the U.S. is usually appalling. In the meantime a little mineral oil ishelpful, dosed according to age

Haven't had a bm in 4 days and am severely uncomfortable. Took ducolax with no effect.do you have a home remedy I can use? I'm 40 yrs old and having to take pain meds for my back which in turn cause my constipation.

You

You are right in that pain medication can cause constipation. Dulcolax is a good idea though it can take a while to work. Things you can do for constipation include drinking more fluids, walking, and increasing fiber. You can also try purchasing Glycerin Suppositories. To use, gently insert one suppository as instructed and try to hold it in for as long as you can, at least 10 minutes. Use these twice a day until resolved. However, if you develop abdominal pain, fever, or vomiting, it could be something besides constipation so if those occur you would have to see a physician.

What should i do about constipation in a 1 week old infant?

Constipation in baby

Open-uri20130731-3842-1vizrhq
I would start by asking if the baby is actually constipated. Often babies (especially breast fed infants) don't stool as often. Many people think this means they are constipated. Some breast fed infants poop once a week! If the baby is gaining weight well and the stool is soft when it comes out then the baby is fine. If the stool is hard (like rabbit pellets) then you should talk to your doctor
