    When DD was constipated at 9 months I was told to offer juice and graham crackers. Prunes may help too. Your lo may be too young for graham crackers.

    If she old enough I would give him prunes. That what works for my daughter. I don't know if I would give her juice.

    Could you try some pears, prunes, or peaches? (Pureed if you aren't comfortable with baby eating whole pieces.) Am told these are good at getting bowels moving.
    I love my kids. I care for them accordingly. What more can I say?

    Try the fruits that start with "P" to get them "P"ooping. That's what I've been told and it's probably better than offering juice.
