Encourage fluids: The most important thing to do is to keep your child hydrated, as these illnesses can lead to dehydration.

What will I do with my seven month old baby having constipated for two days?

What will I do with my seven month old baby having constipated for two days?

First, define: You need to explain what you mean by constipation. If baby is having hard, formed stools, that is really constipated. That will often respond to a change in formula, decreasing milk in mom's diet if breast fed. If you mean the baby grunts, pushes, cries, but passes soft or runny stools, or doesn't poop for several days, but still has soft or runny poop, that is not constipation. ...Read more

Hydrate: It will depend on the baby's age and overall health but hydration is the most important thing.

Pedialyte type products or oral rehydration powder mixed appropriately or some "gator-ade" type rehydration may help. Must be "peeing". If not must be seen. Dark urine, no tears, no drool--see pcp. ...Read more

My two yr old son is normally a great eater now lately for the past couple days he is not when do I worry?

Come and go: The appetite of the two year old will come and go. He may eat "well" for a few days, then you may have days that you actually wonder if anything got into his mouth! Also keep in mind that from 2 to 3 kids gain far less weight than in the first several years of life.
