baby constipated but will not drink water or juice


Lo hasn't had a Poo since Friday. He will not touch water or freshly squeezed pure Apple juice diluted with water. I've even tried it in a beaker and just before his milk when I know he's hungry to see if he would take a few sips but he won't! I've done a tummy massage this morning and I gave him two does of lactulose yesterday....... still nothing. He woke up this morning with a not very wet nappy at all after its been on for 12 hours through the night. What can I do? He has had a wet nappy this morning x

I know you can get lactoluse from the chemist which is meant to be really good at getting them to 'go'. Or you could pop to the DR's and see if they can perscribe it or suggest something else for you. Hmm just seen your ticker not sure what the age is for lactoluse but NUKE's ideas good too prune juice is meant to be really effective too.

hope your LO manages to go soon.

What does the dosage say on the pack, if it says its fine then id personally try again wait and if hes still struggling then try the prune juice.

Maria is having the same problem, no poo since friday. I tried giving water but she spits it back out, I tried giving the water I soaked some prunes in and she drank that but it had no effect.

You have probably already tried but thought I would mention just in case...we did cycling movements with lo's legs while he was led down and this seemed to help

I will probly get called all the names under the sun but my lo was badly constipated last week,chemist would not help and she would not drink water apple orange or prune juice I even tried mixing prunes into her porridge.
After 3 days of a screaming unhappy 7 month old I mixed her formula with a scoop less 7oz water to 6 scoops after 2 feeds she had gone 5 times and was back to her happy self.

If you normally give milk warm, try warming the juice to the same temperature as the milk x
