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. Formula fed babies usually have a more predictable pattern of daily stools. If stools are getting hard, i often try full strength prune juice, 1oz once or more/d. Takes about 3d to get things moving. ...Read more

The most plausible cause is the luffy epithelial layer of the tongue, which can collect and hide millions of bacterias and chemicals, hence the bad taste or odor.

See your MD. ...Read more

How much if any of the properties of prune juice will pass through the breastmilk to a child?  If I drink it in moderation will my daughter benefit?

I drink 16oz of prune juice every day to regulate me. Is this healthy to do? I read prunes have high concentration of Acrylamide.

I drink 16oz of prune juice every day to regulate me. Is this healthy to do? I read prunes have high concentration of Acrylamide.

No verdict yet...: Looked that one up. Acrylamide apparently is in a ton of foods, including coffee, black olives & lots of starchy foods. The WHO is collecting data on it, but as of now, there are no evidence-based conclusions regarding whether it is associated with an increased incidence of cancers of any kind. I read eons ago that there may actually be a decreased incidence of colon CA in heavy coffee drinkers... ...Read more

Does prune juice really work well instead of using a laxative? If so, how much should a person drink each day to become 'regular'?

Does prune juice really work well instead of using a laxative? If so, how much should a person drink each day to become 'regular'?

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. Increasing fiber (metamucil is one product). Many use MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) as gentle and reliable. Prune juice alone can wortk for some. Cruciferous veggies (cauliflowerm broccoli, cabbage) may be gassy. Good luck. ...Read more
