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. Formula fed babies usually have a more predictable pattern of daily stools.

Can I give sunsweet prune juice to my 2 month old baby? If yes how much quantity per day is safe?Is it ok to give only1oz of prune juice at a time

Why would you give?: In general, there is no indication, reason, or need to give any juice to an infant. This may only set himself up for a preference to consume sweetened foods later on. If baby is feeding well - preferably breast milk - and has normal stool output and make plenty of wet diapers, I would refrain from giving juice. There are some doctors who recommend this for mild constipation however. ...Read more

My 7 months old formula fed  son is constipated, i started him on baby food.Tried giving him prune juice  but unsucessful.What else can I give him?

Depends: Try to find out if a particular food is causing this. I've noticed sweet potato, bananas and some cereals often do (but it could be something else). Try to eliminate that food or at least decrease. If none found, then make sure baby is getting enough liquids and fiber in diet. Then, you can try giving prunes and other fruits in higher amounts. If still not better, talk with your pediatrician. ...Read more

What can I take to boost or support my digestive immune system up and how top lose my baby fat weight wil prune juice cleanse out my body please help.

Good news/bad news: 1st, good news. Congratulations on your baby (i assume b/c you mentioned baby fat). Bad news. Ignore all the hype on radio, tv & internet about some special food or combination of foods to boost or support your digestive immune system. Prune juice can help get your bowels moving again but that's about it. Best to focus on eating healthy diet, exercising regularly & resting while your baby sleeps. ...Read more
