    I think Grace might be a little bit constipated. She was farting all last night and it sounded like she was doing a poo but when I checked there was nothing. This morning when I changed her nappy she had a tiny bit of poo but it was round and looked quite hard and was a greeny colour unlike the usual runny yellow. I know you can give water but she won't take it so I was going to try a little bit of diluted orange (I assume it's fresh orange juice) but how many ounces of orange juice do you have with how many ounces of water?

    Joseph used to get quite constipated so i bought him some baby juice (Cow & Gate) and I'd usually give him about 2 or 3 ounces, that really got things going lol! I didn't really dilute mine :)

    when it has happened in the past i have given 1 oz of cooled boiled water with 1 teaspoon of fresh orange juice...its very acidic and they sometimes like the taste but it works a treat!!
