Do one thing .. apply on tummy hing & little bit of water n it should be warm paste ..make a thin paste . apply on navel clockwise n anticlockwise .before applying this on tummy apply ghee after that I can apply paste .& as well as do normal exercise .. try it .it will work .

Please do not give honey to a baby under one year of age. It can cause botulism which is a blood related infection and can be fatal. Exclusively breast fed babies do tend to pass stools once every few days but since baby is uncomfortable give the syrup suggested by the doctor. Additionally hold the baby in warm water for a few minutes every day. You can also do gentle circular movements massage on the abdomen in concentric circles around the naval and all the way to the pelvis.

hey I also used to combine the hing therapy with 0.30ml neopeptine drops thrice a day. do this only when you feel your baby is striggli g to poop but nothing's happening. one day of three doses and your baby will be able to poop next day
