If your child has not defecated in 48 hours, he may have constipation. And if his stools are hard and dry, it is the sign of dehydration. Overall, breastfeeding baby has more bowel movement than the formula-fed baby. Treat your child’s constipation as soon as you see the symptoms to avoid serious complications.

2.    If you are breastfeeding and your baby is constipated, something beyond the diet is going wrong, because constipation rarely happens in breastfed babies. Check your baby's temperature and look for signs of disease.

3.    If your child has started eating solid food, just add high fiber foods to his diet such as spinach, broccoli, beans and whole grains.

4.    Keep your baby hydrated. This will help soften the stool. Let him drink prune juice, apple juice or apricot juice. Fiber and chemicals contained in the juice are natural laxatives.

5.    Apply water-based lubricant to your baby’s anus to help move hard stools. Massage baby's belly. Gently press your finger to a location about 1.5 inches below his navel. Continue pressing lightly, and hold for about 3 minutes.

6.    If the baby’s constipation persists for long time, ask your doctor for a mild laxative.
