    I wouldn't say your baby's constipated just because he hasn't pooped in 3 days. If he actually poops hard, dry, pellet-like stools, then you know he's really constipated.

    Don't give any suryp or juice. They could make the baby poop, yes, but they are NOT GOOD FOR BABY. All he needs right now is breastmilk. Solids during the first year are more for fun and learning, so if you believe he is constipated, please cut back on solids or cut them out entirely for a few days until his poops are back to normal. Breastmilk is a natural laxitive. Solids, espceally cereals, do tend to constipated many babies.
