How long does a babies gliceran suppository take in affect the baby is 5 weeks old and constipated
A: A glycerine suppository only takes a few minutes to melt, but it may take a few more hours for the child to pass a stool. Constipation is the passage of a dry, hard stool - not necessarily the absence of daily stool. If you suspect your child may be crying because he is ill, call your child's doctor. That being said, constipation is common in infants and there are a couple things you can do to help. 1.) give pear or prune juice - 1oz/age in months/day so in your case 1 oz. Not only does prune or pear juice have sugar which can help soften bms, but also has fiber (notice the gritty texture when you drink it?). This does not mean that you should be feeding your baby juice as a part of his regular diet, but it's ok in daily small amounts to treat constipation. 2.) if juice does not work, then you can try a glycerine suppository which you can buy over the counter. Just cut a pea-sized piece of the glycerine and place it in the baby's anus to lubricate the hard stool. This is not meant for daily use, so if you find that your baby needs a suppository in order to have a bm despite dietary changes, discuss with your child's doctor. 3.) do not use mineral oil, laxatives or enemas. These methods are not safe for infants. 4.) finally, if constipation is persistent and not improved with any of the above recommendations, be sure to contact your baby's doctor. There are some very rare underlying disorders such as hirschprung's disease, cystic fibrosis or hypothyroidism that can cause chronic constipation.
I gave myself a pedi-lax that you use for babies. It's a liquid glycerin suppositories. I used it and I'm bleeding from my rectum after having a bowl.
Glycerin: Should not be that irritating to your body since it is safe for kids. If your bowel movement was huge it could have caused a tear in the anus and that is why you are bleeding. If it continues, you should be seen by your doctor. Chances are it is a local problem after the bm.
Rectally: Soothe them, tell them what you are going to do, and very gently place the suppository on the anus and exert slight persistent pressure and it should slip in.
Medication Direction: Every medication comes with directions, please consult these directions to determine the proper use for your suppositories.See 1 more doctor answer

If soft, I don't consider it constipation.Wetting every 6 hours or more & feeding vigorously are signs of good basic health. All babies pull legs & arms in when fussing as a reflex.
