    You may want to increase fluid intake and not just food - eg. if you eat alot of high fibre food but don't drink enough fluid, it's not going to flush out!

    Each child is different but I have noticed that bananas, apples and grapes don't do much to help my son poo(2 and a half years old, poos on average of at least once, mostly twice a day)....berries (strawberries/blueberries/raspberries), papaya, melon (not watermelon) and esp. kiwi fruit do the trick on the fruit front - I have never had to resort to prune or prune juice but alot of people swear by it. Also lots of hard green veggies like brocolli help too....he takes brown bread (only takes white bread when he's running a temperature!) almost everyday for breakfast and sometimes as a snack too.....if your LO is not drinking water voluntarily and prefers juice, dilute the juice significantly with water.....lots of running around and jumping up and down helps too! GOOD LUCK....

    sumei,

    Thanks for the tips. He finally did after we fed him with banana, yoghurt, water, banana again, juice, more water with juice, some more banana and water. When he did poo, everyone cheered! As soon as he finished his business, he seemed 10 times more playful!

    Be careful, banana will not help constipation it will make it worse.

    If your baby is constipated, try papaya, or pear.

    If they have runny poo, give them banana, apple and rice.

    We followed Gina Ford's book on weaning, and to avoid conspitation she recommended a bit of pear daily. We normally gave it to D for his evening meal.

    Whenever constipation hits my son, I resort to sweet potato/yam, and it usually solves the problem.

    Dear all, thanks for your input.

    About banana... looked it up on the internet and found banana to be helpful in both constipation and diarrehea?? So confused!

    With my older DD, prunes always help. If your LO is young, you can puree it and blend it with milk. Now she eats the dried ones and they work like wonders for her. Prune juice is good too.
