hi anon, pls increase fluids, give papaya daily. grate veggies like carrots, pumpkin, dudhi in rice/khichadi. pls find out what is causing baby constipation and remove that food immediately. u might have to visit the dr today itself and ask for a syrup laxative to give baby relief. tc

Do you also see that the stool is hard. Increase liquid intake. Make sure you include enough fiber in your food. Also you can consult your doc and ONLY then if adviced can insert glycerine capsule for few days to let all the hard stool pass easily and ease bowel movements.

Also if you can stop giving spinach and ragi for few days as its rich in iron and might cause constipation.
