Change your diet and: Fluids. Eat a high fiber diet between 20-25 grams per day, regular meal times and drink 80-100 oz of caffeine free alcohol free fluids daily. If you exercise and should add 20 oz per 30 minutes of strenuous exercise. Some meds contribute to constipation so take the meds with full glass of fluid instead of a sip in addition to the above recommended fluids.

Can I give my 3 month old baby pear juice?

Can I give my 3 month old baby pear juice?

Not advised: Unless your doctor is treating constipation. For the first 6 month of age your baby should only be on breast milk or formula. You generally don't want to give any juices at all (especially not the first 2 years of life) for many reasons: it "corrupts" those taste buds and then that's all they want to drink, most are way too processed, extra sugar added, empty calories, preservatives...

Maintain hydration: Maintaining hydration in a sick infant is very important. An electrolyte solution designed for babies such as Pedialyte would be a better option that pear juice. Flavoring the electrolyte solution with the juice of choice is always an option. Monitor urine output closely, and notify your pediatrician if there is more than 8-12 hours between wet diapers.

Can orange juice help with constipation?

Can orange juice help with constipation?

Not usually.: Orange juice does not usually help the bowels move properly. If it is just an occasional problem, you might want to consider prunes. In the long run, you will want to increase fiber in your diet. A fiber cereal is good for that. I mix mine up in yogurt each morning to give it a better taste. Often I add in fruit also. Good luck.

Is cranberry juice good for constipation?

Is cranberry juice good for constipation?

A little: Cranberry juice has sugar, which can help a little the way any juice can. Plus staying well hydrated is important. In regards to it's laxative power, not really. Cranberries themselves offer fiber the same way other berries do, and that is substantiative. However, juices have little fiber and aid little as a laxative.

How much prune juice will help relive my constipation?

How much prune juice will help relive my constipation?

May or may not help: Prunes/juice can help, but it does not work for everyone. I have never seen or heard of prune-overdose, so enjoy as many as you wish. If not better in 2-3 days, try miralax, (polyethylene glycol) fibercon, senokot-s, colace, Metamucil etc... For quicker relief, enema may help. Occasional use of milk-of-magnesia or mag-citrate for really-backed-up cases. If persistent, consult doc. Good luck.

Is it healthy to give a 3 month old baby pear juice or apple juice?

Is it healthy to give a 3 month old baby pear juice or apple juice?

No: A three month old needs milk or formula, nothing else. That said, a fruit is a beautiful package; it's relatively low calorie, packed with nutrients, and lots of fiber. The perfect way to ruin this beautiful, tasty, compactly nutritious package is to juice it. When you juice a fruit, you remove most of the fiber, most of the vitamins and nutrients, and you leave water and sugar.

My baby has constipation what's the best way to treat her I gave her prum juice apple juice?

Constipation: Would be helpful to know your baby's age as well as stool pattern. Did you recently introduce cereals or other solid foods? That will change stool consistency and frequency. Using prune or apple juice will soften stools- do not use more than 2-4 ounces of either juice in 24 hours.

Should poop out: A person drinking lots of apple juice usually poops out, due to sugars and sorbitol in the apple juice. The person will actually get too much sugar from drinking too much juice (can lead to bad things like diabetes). A 56 year-old who gets new changes in her bowel habits, such as new constipation, should be checked out by her primary care doctor (wouldn't want anything bad happening in the colon).
