    LO having constipation

    My LO will be 10 mths old next week. She has been having hard stool for more than 2 weeks. I want to try prune juice but am not sure where can I get those specifically for babies. Or anyone can recommend me a brand? Where can I get it?
    She has been drinking lots of water and had tried bottled pear juice which she doesn't like it. She has fruits and vegetables everyday.. Spinach and broccoli, purée pear, avocado and plum. Is not really helping, poor LO always having hard poo and sometimes I need to help by pulling out bit by bit so is easier for her.

    Help...
    Do I need to take her to doc?

    you don't need prune juice specifically for babies. get regular prune juice. put a tablespoon into water/apple juice to dilute it.

    I use the Sunrasia (spelling???) brand one. Just use the plain one not the one with aloe added. I dilute 1 oz of juice with 1 oz of water. Has worked really well for my LO.

    You might want to try some probiotics. Both my kids suffer from occasional bouts of constipation and our pediatrician gives us probiotics to help and they really do help my kids.
    Gets their system going fast and the gas out quickly so relieves their discomfort.
    Their are different strains of lactobacillus out there but the Reuteri strain is meant to aid constipation and diarrhea. Google for more info - but the brand that we get from the Drs has Chinese packaging for the HK market but ultimately is from BioGaia Stockholm, which holds patents for the Reuteri strain.
    I'm sure you can get this OTC from a pharmacy.
    You crush half a tab and mix it into their milk.
    Hope this helps!

    When he was constipated I gave it 2 times in one day before he went. Another time he went after only drinking it once.
