Re: why does my 18 month old get constipated?
i never had any success with prune juice, or with the baby food prunes.... but cooking prunes on the stove with a mix of 1/4 part apple juice and the rest water, and then blending it up to baby food texture has always worked! i mix it up with some applesauce or mix it into oatmeal and my girls love it.
make sure he's not eating a lot of bananas, cheerios, cheese, rice, or other binding foods like that. offer more things like strawberries, raisins, apples, etc. give him a lot of water or very watered down juice to drink.
