hey its not a good idea to use mineral oil for constipation.Under age 12 months mineral oil harms the baby,when they gag that time mineral oil goes in their lungs, and its very hard removing oil from their lungs.

Hi

My son had the same problem till he was 4yrs old I used to give him mineral oil at such times. Now he is alright and passes stools normally. Hope this helps.

Bananas do help a lot. But the best bet is to give prunes or prune water. Prunes is nothing but \";dry black grapes\";. You can grind the prunes and give to your baby as a snack. It's very rich in iron. Hope this helps!

Most doctors say banana doesn't help - the potassium in it makes constipation worse. Remember you can make your own prune puree in a blender. Grape, grapefruit and papaya are also laxative fruits. And remember you can safely use baby suppositories as often as you need to (they also help with "training" the baby to do a dirty at the same time every day)

RE:constipation
When the baby is in discomfort from constipation (especially if she hasn't done some dirty for two days or more), the first thing you should give is a glycerin suppository.... - Su 03 [View Message]
