Constipated Jesse

Since baby Jesse has constipation problem. Eventhough she was fully on breast milk she was and is still going through constipation. She will wail, scream and cry out real loud when she try pass motion.

About 3 months ago, we started giving her prune juice. At initial stage, she was on 2oz of prune juice diluted with 2oz of water every morning. It started to ease her bowel movement. When she started to have constipation again, we increased her prune juice intake to 3oz with 1oz of water.

With 3oz of prune juice everyday, she still had problems with her bowel. She is now on 4oz of prune juice. We have replaced her 4x of milk intake to 2x a day. We substituted her 2x milk with soymilk.

Every morning, around 6+am, we will feed her prune juice. In the morning and afternoon, she will gets her 6oz of Enfagrow milk, before bed and midnight we will give her soymilk. With this changes, her stool has become very soft and sometimes watery.

My Sherilyn has also always been a very constipated child. Red dragon fruit and fresh milk is always the best relief for her. Try it and see if it works on Jesse.
