Get some baby food prunes and pears. Feed once a day. That's what we do. Works great. Prune juice works for some as well.

Hi Olive....I too suggest fruit juices. They always seemed to help with my kids. Also, not sure if you have her on regular milk yet or not, but if you do, make sure you have her on whole milk since anything else could cause constipation.

Re: 11 month old baby has constipation,what should i do?

Suppositories are never a good idea. They are chemicals that are going into your babies anus and they are absorbed into the body. When my daughter was 1.5, we went through some major constipation with her for about 2 months. I never once used any sort of drug or suppositories. Bascially her diet if off balance and you need to figure out how to fix it. Unless she is taking some sort of medicine??? it is likely just her diet. More water, prune and apples juice will help her push it out. Usually more water in the diet and apple juice did the trick for us. I was giving too much dairy and bread products and with warm weather, my daughter needed more water. Once I realized this I changed her diet and we never had a problem since.

I agree--fruit juices work well. What really worked when my ds was that age was prunes (the jarred, baby food kind). It never failed--if he was constipated, and we gave him prunes for breakfast, he'd be good to go by about supper time!!!

This happened to my son as well....They told me to go by mineral oil and but it in his drink...this is completeley safe..Well i did this and it has helped alot! You don't want your child to be backed up because that can cause serious problems....Hope your little one gets better soon....Kristen
