    Offering the cup immediately after and between each feed worked really well for us and we were down to about 4 times a day too when I knew it was time.

    Good luck !!

    Re: Still Constipated

    What has worked for us is 1/3 a jar (small) of prunes mixed in with whatever other solids she has 2X a day.
