My almost four month old baby is constipated what can I do help him feel better and be able to poop?

Report as

Carrots helps. *The canned baby food* I also have a 4 month old baby girl, & my doing the 'bicycle' with her legs helps get it out also. Put one knee to their belly, while pulling the other leg out, back and forth. It 'lubs' it out, as gross as it sounds. That is why as adults, when you have to go to the bathroom, walking is hard, because it helps! :) Hope this works for your baby!

thank you so much I did what you suggested he didn't poop but he did fall asleep so I must of made him a little bit more comfortable

I am glad it made him feel better. If you put some 'kyro' syrup (sorry if I spelled that wrong) in their bottle, it also helps, Then you can feed them apple juice (I put 3 ounces water, 1 - 2 ounces juice to dilute it) it will have them pooping like crazy!

Take him to a Pediatrician right away. If he appears to be in much pain take him to the ER. Hope he feels better soon!

We would mix karo syrup in the formula. I think it was about a teaspoon.

my cousin is like this, ask your doctor and she is as little bit older but try leaving him/her alond for a while, he/she might feel better being alone but then again he/she is a toddler soooo good luck!

Do they actually have those?
Report as
Yes, they do. You could find it at any pharmacy. They sort of look like over-sized pipets. It really helps.

Always works!!! Rub baby lower right abdomen for a minute then rub above belly button for a minute and then rub the left lower abdomen. This stimulates the bowel and should help. Also when your baby is on the floor, push the knees up to the chest several times Stay away from bananas. Use apple juice.
