So Kassidy is constipated. She has had issues with being regular since birth... I give her Karo Syrup in water every other day to help out. It usually does the trick. But not this week.. I have given it to her 3 times this week and she hasn't gone since last Saturday. What do I do?

Prune juice. There are also glycerine suppositries, but they will make a phenomenal mess.

^^^ yup. I've also heard that just taking a rectal temp is enough to open the floodgates. I've never done it though. Prune juice has always worked for the kids.

I think the explosions are worse than the constipation.

are you sure shes constipated? when kaylie was born she was having problems going and we(my husband) had to stimulate her rectum by sticking his pinky finger up there(not too far just a little bit) it always did the trick. and she wasnt constipated she just needed stimulation

The things parents do for our children...
I was bottle feeding and was told to put a little extra water in the formula when this happened. I know that probably wont help you though, and you are not supposed to give them straight water.
I think Prune Juice would be your best option! lol

We had to give Reese suppositories up until we started putting prune juice in his bottle. We probably did that up until he was around 6 months.

Kids and their poop. Why can't they just POOP!

(Can you tell I had a rough time with Reese and the POOP!) Gaah!

Hopefully it gets better as she gets older!
