Natural Treatment For Constipation In Infant

Here are some steps you can take at home to treat constipation in infants:

Increase fluid intake: Offer your baby more water or unsweetened fluids like apple juice to help soften their stools.

Offer more fiber: Offer your baby foods high in fiber such as pureed prunes, peaches, pears, or peas.

Encourage physical activity: Gentle physical activity like tummy time, baby yoga, or a warm bath can help stimulate bowel movements.

Massage: Gently massage your baby’s tummy in a clockwise direction to help move stool along.

Give a glycerin suppository: Only use this under the guidance of a pediatrician as a last resort.

If these measures don’t help, or if you notice blood in your baby’s stool, severe abdominal pain or your baby is losing weight, consult your pediatrician.
