My lo is a little constipated. We started her on solids a couple weeks ago. I started to thicken her cereal a little bit more, but still pretty liquidy. My caregiver asked if she could give her a little diluted apple juice to see if that would help. She is in some discomfort. I called my ped to get his thoughts and he said to give her Milk of Magnesia 1/4 tspn 2 times a day until she is regular. I don't feel comfortable with this advice because I don't want her to depend on laxatives to move her bowels. Any advice?
