My 5 Month Old Baby Is Constipated What Can I Give Him To Relive The Problem

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
CONSTIPATION: Breast fed babies can have a bowel movement every 5-7 days, or 5-7 times a day. Don't know whether your child if on breast milk. If not, give extra fluid/water, oatmeal cereal, more vegetable with some green leafy vegetables, some prune juice. Sometimes change of formula with whey protein containing one helps in regular bowel movement with bulky stool. If still concern, see baby's pediatrician. ...Read more

Baby reflux ideas: Are you sure it is acid reflux? See a doctor because there are medications that can help.

6 months: Years ago, breastfeading was frowned on & many made "formula" from boiled cow milk&karo. Since cow milk is designed for calves, infants were fed early & often to make up for deficiences in cow milk. Now that breast is back, or formulas mimic breast, solids are optional. The sitting child is more capable of participating & few sit before 6m. Babies can wait past a year and thrive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My breastfed infant is a month old and for the last few days she has been having 1-2 bowel movements a day. Is she constipated if so what to give her?
Probably OK: It is not unusual for babies to have change in stool pattern as they grow. . Also, it is normal for breastfed babies to have longer periods of time with no stools. Breast milk is the perfect baby food, thus there is less "waste" so to speak. If the baby's stomach is not distended, and he has a large soft stool infrequently this is not constipation requiring intervention. ...Read more

My 3.5 month old baby sleeps for max 45 min stretches at night. This doesn't seem normal for babies of this age. Is this bad for his development?
Will get by: Baby will do better than you with this. I would change the kid back to a more traditional night pattern.If you never allow the kid more than 2 hours of sleep at a time during the day, waking him to feed or whatever, you can get his deep sleep segment to go back to nights when you don't wake him.Don't feed prior to sleep, only feed on awakening. ...Read more
