my sister's son is 5 months and he is not passing stool for more than 10 days. what should be done for this. can any food will help him to pass the stool....

If the baby is exclusively breast fed and is comfortable then this is normal. If the baby is on formula then please consult the doctor. No other foods can be given to a baby under six months of age.

she told doctor has given some tablets which will help him to pass.... but if she doesn't give that tablets he will not at all pass itseems.... is it good to give such tablets?

Last night mere sath bhi aisa hua meri beta 2 months ka hai... And he not done potty last 4days... So my mother told me.. Thodi si heeng mei jara sa pani daal kar garam karo halka sa and uske poore stomach par halka halka laga do specially on his belly button... I hope it work on ur baby also... And it is commonly happened with the babies...
