my 5 1/2 month old is constipated, which has never been a problem for her. I gave her her gerber and she has not been able to go for 3-4 days now, what can i give her that is as natural as possible?

Constipation is the improper bowel movement and a disorder resulting because of gastro-intestinal disturbance. A few handy tips are here!

  • A gentle massage on the baby's tummy in a clockwise direction is adviceable.
  • Giving a warm water bath is helpful.
  • Barley or oatmeal cereals, prunes, peaches, plums, apricots and most vegetables are preferred.
  • Prune juice helps.
  • Apple juice contains more sugars and liquids and has a laxative effect. So, it helps relieve constipation.
  • Bananas, Rice, Applesauce and Toast are to be avoided.
