My 3 Month Old Baby Is Constipated
Also, is he truly : constipated? Babies don't need to have a bowel movement every day, so unless the stools are very hard, and infrequent and he is uncomfortable, you don't need to do anything.

I started my 3 month old on baby food 2 days ago. Now he's constipated. What can I give him to unconstipate him?
Water: Most constipation is due to dehydration. Give him or her a little extra water or dilute his milk or formula with water. You can also try mineral oil, which is a clear oil, that you can mix with food or drink and this will naturally soften stool. If baby is throwing up, fevers, or not eating and excessively fussy, you need to contact your pediatrician. Try vaselline on rectum too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 8 month old baby is constipated too the point that suppositories and lactose don't seem to be working.what else can I try ?

My 7 month old baby is constipated. I can see her sphinx and she cries on occasion. Her stools are relatively hard. How can I help her find relief?

So a baby that has hard rabbit pellet poop but goes 2-3 times a day is constipated, but a baby that has soft, mushy poop but only goes every 3-4 days is not constipated and that's normal and not uncommon. Some babies have efficient GI tracts and just don't make that much poop, so don't need to go daily. ...Read more
