Q:

What are some great baby products for helping with baby's constipation?

Hi everyone,

I am a new mom to a beautiful 3-month-old baby girl and I am having trouble with her constipation. I have tried a few home remedies like giving her warm baths, massaging her belly, and trying different formulas, but nothing seems to be working. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for baby products that could help with her constipation? I want to make sure she is comfortable and not in pain. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Hi there,

I had a similar problem with my baby girl and I found that the Windi Gas and Colic Reliever worked wonders for her constipation. The Windi is a small, flexible tube that you insert into your baby's bottom to help release gas and relieve constipation. It is completely safe and my daughter always felt better after using it.

I also use the Mommy's Bliss Constipation Ease Drops. It is formulated with natural ingredients like prune juice concentrate, fennel extract, and dandelion root, which help to relieve constipation effectively. I add a few drops into my daughter's formula and within a few hours, she seems relieved.

Hope this helps!

Hi all,

I empathize with the struggles of having a baby with constipation, as I went through the same thing with my son when he was a newborn. One product that worked for me was the Pedia-Lax Enema. It is a fast-acting saline solution that softens the stool and makes it easier to pass through. However, please make sure to discuss the use of the enema with your pediatrician and follow the instructions exactly as directed.

Another thing that helped my baby was giving him tummy time. This helps to strengthen the abdominal muscles and promotes bowel movements. You can also try massaging your baby's belly gently in a clockwise motion to relieve constipation.

I hope this helps you find some relief for your little one!

Hi everyone,

My baby also suffered from constipation, and I tried everything from cycling her legs to giving her baths, but nothing seemed to be working. Then my pediatrician recommended using a rectal suppository like Pedia-Lax Liquid Glycerin Suppositories.

These glycerin suppositories are gentle and work within five to 30 minutes to soften and lubricate the stool, making it easier for the baby to pass. The suppository is safe, quick, and easy to use, and it's great to have on hand for when your baby is struggling with constipation.

I also found that changing my baby's diaper frequently helped. Sometimes, she would feel uncomfortable with a dirty diaper and that would inhibit her from having a bowel movement. So, if I changed her diaper more frequently, it helped keep her feeling fresh and comfortable, which in turn helped with her constipation.

I hope my experience with dealing with infant constipation helps others.

Hey there,

I understand how worrisome it is when your little one is constipated. I also dealt with this issue when my baby was just a few weeks old. What worked for me was using the FridaBaby Windi Gas and Colic Reliever, just like user 1 has already mentioned. It's simple to use and helps release the trapped gas and stool immediately.

Apart from that, I would suggest trying infant probiotics like BioGaia Gut Health Drops. My pediatrician recommended them to me and they worked effectively for my baby's constipation. BioGaia supports a healthy digestion, helps build a healthy immune system and reduces colic symptoms for my baby girl.

I hope this helps you and your baby!

Hi everyone,

I understand how difficult it can be to see your baby struggling with constipation. With my baby, I found that using the Mommy's Bliss Constipation Ease Gripe Water was really helpful. It contains natural ingredients like prune juice concentrate, organic ginger extract, and fennel extract, which promotes digestion and helps relieve constipation.

Another product that helped my baby relieve the discomfort was a rectal thermometer. I know it may sound weird, but gently inserting a rectal thermometer helped stimulate the bowel movements in my baby. However, just ensure that you use a dedicated rectal thermometer and do not insert it too deep.

Also, make sure that your baby is getting enough fluids to stay hydrated and switch to formula that is designed to help with constipation. In my case, I switched my baby's formula to Enfamil Reguline Infant Formula, which contains a gentle blend of prebiotic fibers to regulate digestive health and prevent constipation.

I hope some of these tips will be helpful to other parents dealing with infant constipation.

Hi everyone,

I can understand the frustration you're going through when it comes to your baby's constipation. I had the same issue with my daughter when she was around 2 months old and it was really difficult for both of us. I tried everything I could, but nothing was helping. Then, one of my friends suggested me to try using the gripe water.

I used the Woodwards Gripe Water for my baby and it worked remarkably well. The gripe water helped ease my baby's digestion, thus reducing her discomfort. Moreover, it is 100% safe and natural, so you don't have to worry about any side effects.

In addition to this, I also used the Infacol colic relief drops for my baby. It is an easy to digest drop formulated with Simethicone, which helps break down the trapped wind that is causing the colic and constipation.

These two products helped my baby to overcome her digestive problems and now she is absolutely fine. I hope this helps you too!

Hi all,

I know how worrying it can be when your little one is not having regular bowel movements. When my child was going through a phase of constipation, I found that the Colic Calm Homeopathic Gripe Water was helpful in easing her discomfort. This product contains natural ingredients like chamomile and fennel, is free from artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, and can be given to babies as young as 2 weeks old.

Another product that helped me was the Little Remedies Gas Relief Drops. While this product is primarily designed to help relieve gas in babies, I found that it also helped my child with constipation. The drops contain simethicone, which helps break up gas bubbles in the stomach and intestines, making it easier for the baby to pass stool.

I hope this helps those of you who are dealing with a constipated baby!
